The Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe winner will be presented the prize from Prince Albert II.

Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Michael Douglas will receive the Crystal Nymph career honor at this year's Monte Carlo Television festival in June.

While the actor might be best known for such films as Wall Street, Fatal Attraction and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, he began his career in television with The Streets of San Francisco in 1972. He recently returned to the small screen with Amazon's The Kominsky Method, which won him a Golden Globe earlier this year. Amazon just re-upped the series for a second season.

Douglas also won an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award for his turn as Liberace in the HBO film Behind the Candelabra in 2013. He follows Helen Mirren, Mariska Hargitay, Patricia Arquette and Donald Sutherland in receiving the honor.

"Michael Douglas’ long career encompasses television, film and theater at the highest level, and he continues to be one of today’s most highly-respected actors," said festival director Laurent Puons. "It's a great pleasure to welcome such an outstanding talent to our festival and to recognize the huge impact his work has had on the global television industry."

Prince Albert II of Monaco will present Douglas with the award at the event's closing ceremony on June 18. The festival starts on June 14.

After a short-lived attempt to transform itself by introducing industry panel discussions, the Monte Carlo festival has over the past couple of years focused on being a more traditional, fan-oriented event boasting plenty of star power. For Hollywood, the Monte Carlo fest is a key, post-LA Screenings launchpad for event series in Europe.
