Michael J Fox Golden Camera lifetime award. Michael J Fox will receive the Golden Camera, one of Germany’s most prestigious entertainment awards for his life’s work. The award will be presented by German listings magazine Horzu.
Fox, 49, is honored with an international lifetime achievement award for his work on and off the screen. The previous winners include Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro and Jack Nicholson. The actor, born in Edmonton and raised in British Columbia, starred in the Canadian sitcom “Leo and Me” before starring in the 1982 U.S. hit sitcom “Family Ties.”
“Michael J. Fox was always able to make a special contribution to his movie roles using his youthful appearance, boyish charm and humour,” organizers said in a statement. “With this award, however, we want to do more than pay tribute to this actor’s artistic achievements that have entertained us for decades. We want to express our great admiration for the way he continues to fight Parkinson’s disease both personally and through the work of his foundation.”
The “Family Ties” movie actor is expected to receive the honour on Saturday in Koln, Germany. He went on to enjoy starring roles in movies in the “Back To The Future” trilogy. Fox has written three best-selling books and launched his own foundation for Parkinson’s Research in 2000.Entertainment News Join The Conversation
