American actress and activist Jane Fonda will receive an honorary award for all of her work at the Golden Globe Awards, scheduled to be held next month, to celebrate her career in film and television and her pioneering stance on several social issues for nearly 60 years.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which is organizing the ceremony, said Tuesday that Fonda will receive the “Cecil B. Dumel” award during the ceremony, which will be held on February 28.
“Her undeniable talent has earned her the highest level of appreciation,” said Ali Sarr, president of the association. “Although her career has witnessed many ups and downs, her dedicated commitment to making change remains firm.”
The 83-year-old Fonda started her career in 1960 on Broadway and then became one of the most important movie stars in the 1960s and 1970s with films such as “Barbarella”.
Her most recent appearance was in the Netflix comedy series “Grace and Frankie”, and she also won two Oscars and 7 Golden Globe Awards.
She also had important positions as a political activist, as she led campaigns opposing the war in Vietnam in the 1970s and the Iraq war in 2003.
Last year, it participated in weekly protests highlighting the dangers of global warming.
