Venice Film Festival to honor Jamie Lee Curtis with Lifetime Achievement Award

Jamie Lee Curtis will be the guest of honour at the 2021 Mostra of Venice. The actress will receive a Golden Lion for her entire career.

 

A lifetime achievement award will be presented to Jamie Lee Curtis at the Venice International Film Festival in September, where the latest installment of her films Halloween will be screened out of competition, organizers announced.

 

 

I am incredibly honored to be recognized in this way by the Venice International Film Festival“, Jamie Lee Curtis said in a statement. “It seems impossible that I’ve been in this industry long enough to receive this honorary award, and to have it happen now, with Halloween Kills is especially meaningful to me.

 

 

The Hollywood star made her film debut in John Carpenter’s 1978 horror film “Halloween” as babysitter Laurie Strode, who confronted serial killer Michael Myers.

 

 

This is a gift to me, because you know I started in 1978 with the character of Laurie Strode, the brave heroine of this scary series. I will receive this trophy on behalf of all women who stand up to adversity and refuse to give in to fear.”

 

In addition to the “Halloween” franchise, Curtis is also known for starring in such blockbusters as “A Fish Called Wanda,” “Trading Places“, “Freaky Friday” ,”True Lies“, “Blue Steel“, “The Panama Tailor” and “Knives Out“.
