After contributing to the movie for over five decades, Jackie Chan has finally won an Academy Award.
Chan received an honorary Oscar at the Eighth Annual Governor’s Awards at the Hollywood and Highland Center in Los Angeles on Saturday night (November 12). Oscar-winner Tom Hanks, Michelle Yeoh and Rush Hour co-star Chris Tucker presented Chan with the award.
“After 56 years in the film industry, making over 200 films, I’ve broken so many bones, finally this is mine,” said Chan. “I want to thank you, Hong Kong, such an incredible city, my hometown, my hood, who make me. China, my country, I am proud to be Chinese. Thank you, Hollywood, for all of those years teaching me so many things, and also make me a little bit famous. I’m just honored to be here.”
