"Over his 50-year career, Jackie has become a beloved, revered personality we all know and love for his innovative stunt work and unique blend of martial arts and comedy. Chan joins an honors list for this year that already includes Jane Fonda, who will receive the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film.
