Julie Andrews set for Hollywood honour

Julie Andrews has been announced as the recipient of the 48th AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.

She will be presented with the honour at a special gala in Los Angeles on 25th April, 2020.

“Julie Andrews is practically perfect in every way,” said Kathleen Kennedy, chair of the AFI board of trustees. “Her talents across time have inspired a shared sense of joy across generations, and her gifts to our cultural heritage are a testament to the power of this art form to bring us together when we need it most. AFI is proud to sing her praises with its 48th Life Achievement Award.”

Andrews becomes the 10th woman to win the prestigious AFI honour, first bestowed in 1973 to “one whose talent has in a fundamental way advanced the film art; whose accomplishment has been acknowledged by scholars, critics, professional peers and the general public; and whose work has stood the test of time.”
