    Jackie Chan To Get Oscar Lifetime Achievement At 2016 Governors Awards

    Actor Jackie Chan will receive a lifetime achievement Oscar, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Thursday. Chan, 62, the Hong Kong-born star of Hollywood movies such as ‘Kung Fu Panda,’ ‘The Karate Kid’ and the ‘Rush Hour’ franchise, will join documentary maker Frederick Wiseman, British film editor Anne V. Coates and casting director Lynn Stalmaster as recipients of the 2016 Governors Awards.

    Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs in a statement called them all ‘true pioneers and legends in their crafts.’
    Chan made his movie debut at the age of 8, and has acted and sometimes written and directed more than 30 martial arts movies in Hong Kong. He has never won an Oscar.

    In August, he was ranked the second-highest paid actor in the world by Forbes with estimated 2016 earnings of $61 million, just below ‘Fast and Furious’ star Dwayne Johnson.
