De Niro, Minogue pose for Camera


COLOGNE, Germany -- Robert de Niro and Aussie pop star Kylie Minogue will receive Germany's top show biz honor, the Golden Camera, at this year's ceremony in Berlin, organizers announced Wednesday.

De Niro will receive a lifetime achievement award, while Minogue will be honored as best international music act.

Much like a local version of the Golden Globes, Germany's Golden Cameras award excellence in film, television and music. The Golden Camera gala is the top showbiz event on the German calendar.

Previous international Golden Camera winners include George Clooney, Nicolas Cage, Cate Blanchett, Steven Spielberg and Bruce Willis.

Now in its 43rd year, the Golden Camera awards are presented by German publishing giant Axel Springer and Horzu, the country's leading TV listings magazine.
