Kirk Douglas to Receive Publicists Lifetime Achievement Award at 50th Annual Luncheon
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
The Publicists of the International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600) will present iconic actor Kirk Douglas with its 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award at its 50th Annual Awards Luncheon to be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday, February 22.
No other actor personifies the term iconic movie star more than Kirk Douglas, said Awards Committee Chairman Henri Bollinger. His acting talent is the underlining basis for his extraordinary success, but it is also due to his uncanny understanding and appreciation for the role that publicity and promotion play in the ultimate success of movies that made him a box office sensation.
The ninety-six-year old Douglas has starred in more than 80 motion pictures and television shows, starting with The Strange Love of Martha Ivers in 1946 until his most recent film, the 2004 Illusion. He has received three Oscar® nominations for Best Actor for Champion (1950), The Bad and the Beautiful (1953) and Lust for Life (1957). The Motion Picture Academy® presented him with a special Lifetime Achievement Oscar® in 1996.
