AFI to Present Morgan Freeman with the Life Achievement Award

11 October 2010 8:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

As he most recently proved in a charming video interview with Steve, few are more deserving of a lifetime achievement award than Morgan Freeman.  The American Film Institute wised up to that axiom, and will present the Oscar winner with the 39th AFI Life Achievement Award.  Chair of the AFI Board of Trustees Sir Howard Stringer eloquently sums up the impact of Freeman’s career:

“Across decades, whether playing a prisoner, a president or God, he embodies a calm authority that demands respect for the character and for the art form.  His gifts to the cultural record are also underscored by his unmistakable voice that echoes through the hearts and minds of movie lovers around the world.”


The gala tribute takes place on June 9, 2011, and will air later that month on TV Land.  Hit the jump for the official announcement.

Here we are, the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. For months we've been seeing these movies, hearing buzz about their awards-worthiness, watching as the participating players press palms and tell the world why their efforts deserve to be honored ahead of the rest. And it all comes down to this. Who will go home with Best Picture? Will it be James Cameron's towering juggernaut "Avatar" or Kathryn Bigelow's tense, indie war story "The Hurt Locker"? That's just one of the many tight races this evening, so keep your browser locked here -- and make sure to keep refreshing! -- for continuing live coverage and commentary of the awards show as it unfolds.

12:02am It was almost a good ending. But then we ended on those two jokers. Steve, Alec... I love you guys. But please don't host the Oscars again. Thanks to all of you readers for tuning in! »
