Jackie Chan To Receive Lifetime Achievement Oscar

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced Jackie Chan will receive a lifetime achievement Oscar.

The Board of Governors of the Academy announced Thursday that they voted to present Honorary Awards to actor Jackie Chan, film editor Anne V. Coates, casting director Lynn Stalmaster and documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman.

The four Oscar statuettes will be presented at the Academy's 8th Annual Governors Awards on November 12.

"The Honorary Award was created for artists like Jackie Chan, Anne Coates, Lynn Stalmaster and Frederick Wiseman – true pioneers and legends in their crafts," said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

"The Board is proud to honor their extraordinary achievements, and we look forward to celebrating with them at the Governors Awards in November."

After making his motion picture debut at the age of eight, Chan brought his childhood training with the Peking Opera to a distinctive international career. He starred in – and sometimes wrote, directed and produced – more than 30 martial arts features in his native Hong Kong, charming audiences with his inventive stunt work and charisma.

Since 'Rumble in the Bronx' in 1996, he has gone on to enormous worldwide success with the 'Rush Hour' movies and, more recently, the 'Kung Fu Panda' series of animated films.

The Honorary Award is given "to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy."
