Jackie Chan’s Big Oscar Moment

And how’s this for diversity?

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that legendary Hong Kongese action star Jackie Chan will be among the honorees at this fall’s 2016 Governors Awards.

Academy Award-winning film editor Anne V Coates (Erin Brockovich, Lawrence of Arabia), casting director Lynn Stalmaster (TV’s Gunsmoke, DeliveranceSuperman, Mommie Dearest, Tootsie), and Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman also will receive honorary Oscars during a gala held at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland on Nov. 12.

Chan – who has more than 130 acting credits on IMDb (and, yes, that’s just for acting) – will be honored for his extraordinary achievements in film.

Rush Hour 4ever!
