SQL Date Comparison Issue

I have a date field in my database table called "DataValidationDue" . If the value in this table is past todays date I would like it to return a string that says "Overdue" . If the value is equal to or earlier than todays date, I would like SQL server to return a string saying "Pending" Can anyone suggest to me the correct syntax for this ? Any help would be most appreciated.
