Milos Forman to Receive DGA's Lifetime Achievement Award
The 65th annual DGA Awards will take place on Feb. 2, 2013.
Milos Forman will receive the Directors Guild of America's Lifetime Achievement Award for Distinguished Achievement in Motion Picture Direction, at the 65th annual DGA Awards on Feb. 2, DGA president Taylor Hackford announced Wednesday.
“It is a tremendous privilege to present the DGA Lifetime Achievement Award for feature film to one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, Milos Forman,” Hackford said. “No matter what subject or genre he tackles, Milos finds the universality of the human experience in every story, allowing us – his rapt audience – to recognize ourselves within the struggle for free expression and self-determination that Milos so aptly portrays on the silver screen.”
Forman is perhaps best known for directing One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus, for which he twice won the DGA Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film. He also took home the best director Oscar for both films.
In the Guild's 76-year history, only 33 directors have been recognized with the honor -- Norman Jewison, the last recipient, was honored in 2010.
