Diane Keaton to receive lifetime achievement award

Diane Keaton is to receive the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award next year (17).
The 70-year-old actress will be honoured with the organisation’s highest honour at a gala in Los Angeles on 8 June.
“Diane Keaton is one of the most beloved leading ladies of American film,” Howard Stringer, chair of the AFI Board of Trustees, said in a statement.
“Peerless in her mastery of both comedy and drama, she has won the world’s heart time and again by creating characters of both great strength and vulnerability. Her career as a director and producer is even further evidence of her passion for the art form and her seemingly boundless talents.”
Diane is no stranger to the gala, as she presented the award to her Father of the Bride co-star Steve Martin last year (15).
Taking to the stage to pay tribute to her pal, Diane almost brought the actor to tears as she serenaded him with his own song Friend of Mine.
Diane remains one of Hollywood’s most loved actresses, thanks to her roles in films such as The Godfather and Manhattan.
She won an Oscar for her part in Annie Hall, and was also nominated for her parts in Something’s Gotta Give, Reds and Marvin’s Room.
