San Sebastian to Honor Tommy Lee Jones with a Donostia Award
The Academy Award-winning actor will receive the lifetime achievement award.
MADRID – Tommy Lee Jones will receive a Donostia Lifetime Achievement at the 60th San Sebastian International Film Festival, organizers announced Thursday, calling the actor "one of the most acclaimed and accomplished actors in Hollywood."
Texan-born Jones’ career began with his 1970 debut in Love Story and boasts a slew of hits, including Coal Miners Daughter—for which he received his first Golden Globe nomination—Natural Born Killers, Batman Forever, Men in Black, Rules of Engagement, The Hunted and his Oscar-winning role as the uncompromising Marshal Sam Gerard in the 1994 box office hit The Fugitive.
The award ceremony will take place on Sept. 28 at the Kursaal Auditorium, just before the screening of Jones’ most recent film, Hope Springs, running in the Zabaltegi Pearls section at San Sebastian.
The festival, which runs Sept. 21-29 in Spain’s northern Basque region, previously announced Ewan McGregor will also receive a Donostia Award this year, while Oliver Stone will be the recipient of a special 60th edition Donostia.
