Hey guys, Jana here,
Jackie Chan is going to receive a golden statue at an Oscars gala in November for lifetime achievement according to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Chan has been in the movies since 1962, for 2016-2017 alone he’s got at least 10 different projects in different levels of completion. Even at 62, Chan’s still a dynamo. He’s known for such Hollywood hits as ‘Kung Fu Panda‘, the ‘Rush Hour‘ series and ‘The Karate Kid‘.
Chan will share the night with other 2016 Governors Award winners, casting director Lynn Stalmaster, documentary maker Frederick Wiseman, and film editor Anne V. Coates. It’s near impossible to list all that Chan has accomplished in the film world, he made his first appearance on film as an 8 year old and his credits have grown into writer, director, stuntman, art director, producer and the list goes on and on. This has been an award a lifetime in the making for Chan and I can think of no one else more deserving of such an honor. Congratulations Mr. Chan.
