Hollywood Film Awards: Robert De Niro to receive the Hollywood Career Achievement Award

16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Presented By The Los Angeles Times - Red Carpet
When the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards have their ceremony on November 1st, one of the very top honors given out will be the prestigious Hollywood Career Achievement Award, which will be presented to Robert De Niro. The legendary actor is a two time Academy Award winner, potentially in contention for another Oscar nomination this year with Joy (which would be another Best Supporting Actor citation for him), and just is one of the best we’ve ever had in the business. It’s an award that’s impossible to argue with, aside from possibly wishing that he’d already been given this prize. There’s few better at their craft, so De Niro is a perfect recipient of this honor. His award will be one of the Hollywood Film Awards highlights this year for sure, that much goes without saying. Kudos are certainly in order for De Niro here…

Here’s part of the press release once again announcing this honor:

dick clark productions announced today that two-time Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro will be honored with the “Hollywood Career Achievement Award.” The awards ceremony will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, on November 1, 2015. The Hollywood Film Awards, the official launch of the awards season®, has recognized excellence in the art of cinema and filmmaking for 18 years, honoring some of the world’s biggest stars. Honorees have gone on to garner many Oscar nominations and wins.

“The Hollywood Film Awards is an incredible brand, previewing some of the biggest movies and stars of the year, while launching the award season,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions. “We are honored to have Robert De Niro as this year’s recipient of the Hollywood Career Achievement Award.”

Robert De Niro is currently starring in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Intern” and will appear next in 20th Century Fox’s “Joy,” coming out December 25, 2015.

Past honorees of the “Hollywood Career Achievement Award” include Glenn Close, Harrison Ford, Richard Gere, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Keaton and Robin Williams among others.

Congrats to Mr. De Niro!
