Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive producer of the 17th Annual Hollywood Film Awards, announced that they will be honoring Academy Award-nominated actor Harrison Ford with this year's "Hollywood Career Achievement Award."
According to a release, the actor--who earlier this year earned critical and audience raves for his portrayal of baseball trailblazer Branch Rickey in Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures' hit drama "42"--has been an international box office favorite for four decades.
The award will be presented at the Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on Monday evening, October 21, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
"It is a great honor to celebrate Harrison Ford's extraordinary talent and remarkable career with our 'Hollywood Career Achievement Award,'" said Carlos de Abreu, Founder and Executive Producer of the Hollywood Film Awards.
In addition to his recent appearance in Brian Helgeland's drama "42," the true story of baseball legend Jackie Robinson, Harrison Ford has starred in some of the most successful films in cinema history, including the landmark "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" franchises.
The Hollywood Film Awards honors cherished stars, filmmakers and up-and-coming talent, and traditionally kicks off the film awards season with the biggest stars and top industry executives in attendance.
"We are very proud to be the first stop of the awards season. In the last ten years, a total of 96 Oscar nominations and 34 Oscars were given to the honorees of the Hollywood Film Awards," said de Abreu.
