These awards are like stamps in a Hollywood coupon book...SAG Lifetime Achievement Award, AFI Lifetime Achievement Award, CB DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award from the HFPA, Lincoln Center Lifetime Achievement Award, AMPAS Governors Award, New York Film Critics Lifetime Achievement Award, etc.

Collect all of them and you are eligible for another prize.

The same people wins these year after year.

Is there ANYONE who would object to this selection? He spent decades as a working actor before he really broke through, and once he did, contributed a ton of memorable performances in films both serious and popular, as both leading man and character actor.

And frankly, given Hollywood's current crisis of decency, an award to someone who seems as universally revered a human being as he is a performer seems like a choice most folks would be happy to cheer for.

"I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity" Woody Allen, The Guardian, 2014, in response to his adopted daughter's allegations.
