Shirley MacLaine to receive AFI Lifetime Achievement Award

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine will be honored with the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award at a June 7th 2012 gala. Other recent honorees include Morgan Freeman, Mike Nichols, Michael Douglas, Al Pacino, George Lucas, and MacLaine’s own brother, Warren Beatty. MacLaine earned her first of six Oscar nominations in 1959 for her leading role as Ginnie Moorehead in “Some Came Running,” but did not win until twenty-five years later, for her role as Aurora Greenway in “Terms of Endearment.”

MacLaine has been nominated no fewer than one hundred times in awards of note, for standout performances in films including “The Apartment,” “Irma La Douce,” and “Madame Sousatzka.” Other popular (if not critically recognized) roles included those of Ella Hirsch (“In Her Shoes”), Eve Rand (“Being There”) and Ouiser Boudreaux (“Steel Magonilias”).
