    The late Bob Saget will be honored with the Impact Award at the fourth annual Critics Choice Real TV Awards. John Stamos, Saget's Full House co-star and longtime friend, will present the award to Saget's wife, actress and television host Kelly Rizzo.

    The Impact Award honors career achievement in nonfiction, unscripted, and reality television programming. The Critics Choice Association announced Tuesday that Saget will be posthumously honored for his work in stand-up comedy and as host of America's Funniest Home Videos from 1989 to 1997.

    Saget previously hosted the awards, which were known at the time as the NPACT Impact Awards, in 2018. The Full House star passed away in January as a result of head trauma suffered while he was on a stand-up comedy tour. Saget was 65.

    The Critics Choice Real TV Awards take place Sunday, June 12 at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
