Jamie Lee Curtis will receive a lifetime achievement honor at the 56th annual International Cinematographers Guild Publicists Awards.
ICG, IATSE Local 600 will hold the awards luncheon on Friday, Feb. 22, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
"We are thrilled to honor Jamie Lee Curtis, who has created a celebrated body of film and television work that spans many genres," ICG national president Steven Poster, ASC said Wednesday in a statement. "Who wasn't frightened by her Laurie Strode character in Halloween — and just as terrified in her reprise portrayal 40 years later? Her artistic talents have generated a legacy of characters that are embedded in our minds forever. We are honored to spotlight her varied and award-winning career."
Curtis' starring role in 1978's Halloween put her on the map, and she has since appeared in a number of films including Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies and Freaky Friday.
Her television credits include Scream Queens, Anything But Love, The Heidi Chronicles and the CBS television movie Nicholas' Gift.
In addition to her acting career, Curtis is a New York Times best-selling children's book author. Her most recent effort, Me, Myselfie & I: A Cautionary Tale, was released in September.
Past recipients of the ICG Publicists' lifetime achievement award include Warren Beatty, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Julie Andrews, Army Archerd, Sid Ganis, Harrison Ford, Peter Bart, Robert Zemeckis, Sylvester Stallone, Carol Burnett, Kirk Douglas, Jerry Lewis, Bob Newhart, Lily Tomlin and Betty White.
As previously announced, Jon M. Chu will also be honored at the luncheon with the Motion Picture Showman of the Year award.
Tim Menke and Sheryl Main will serve as co-chairs of the awards.
