Veteran director Sidney Lumet will receive an honorary statuette at next year's (FEB05) OSCAR ceremony - his first ever Academy Award.
The Dog Day Afternoon filmmaker has previously picked up five Oscar nominations for films including 12 ANGRY MEN and THE VERDICT, but he has never taken home an award.
ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURE ARTS AND SCIENCES president FRANK PIERSON says Lumet's award is for "brilliant services to screenwriters, performers and the art of the motion picture".
Of the decision to honour Lumet, Pierson explains, "Lumet is one of the most important film directors in the history of American cinema.
"And his work has left an indelible mark on both audiences and the history of film itself. It was a great personal pleasure and professional honour to call Sidney to tell him he'd won his profession's highest honour."
His journey has not come without hard work and hustle, and 'At. Long. Last. A$AP.' is certainly his best work so far.
The video also features an appearance from model Tyson Beckford and ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett.
