Post by: Blade~ on November 15, 2016, 01:55:02 pm
The 62-year-old action star was awarded an honorary Oscar at the Eighth Annual Governors Awards at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Tom Hanks, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Tucker presented Chan with the award. Hanks compared Chan to the likes of John Wayne and Buster Keaton. Chan accepted his award, calling it a “dream” and shared his memories growing up and watching the Oscars with his parents. The actor recalled watching the ceremony with his parents and his father always asking him why he didn't have Hollywood's top accolade despite having made so many movies.

We congratulate Jackie and wish him more success in his career and life!
