Veteran star Jerry Lewis set to receive Lifetime Achievement award
Veteran actor Jerry Lewis has been chosen as this year's recipient of the Lifetime Achievement award by Hollywood's union publicists.
According to Variety, the 'Max Rose' star will be honoured with the award at the Publicists Awards Luncheon on February 28.
President of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild, Steven Poster, said that the comedian is a national treasure who has provided generations worldwide with decades of laughs.
The money Lewis raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Jerry's Kids is simply astounding, Poster asserted.
Poster added that Jerry is also one of the main reasons he wanted to get into show business when he was a child.
