Charlize Theron, who is currently garnering some of the best notices of her career for her portrayal of Megyn Kelly in Jay Roach's Bombshell, is only 44 — but at the 23rd Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday, Nov. 3, the South African will collect a career achievement award, organizers of the event announced Tuesday.

Theron emerged on the Hollywood scene in the late 1990s in films such as The Devil's Advocate (1997), Mighty Joe Young (1998), The Cider House Rules (1999) and The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000), but truly made her name with a rave-reviewed Oscar-winning turn in Monster (2003). She garnered another Oscar nom for North Country (2005) and received Golden Globe noms for Young Adult (2011) and Tully (2018), in between which she starred in several other standout indies, including In the Valley of Elah (2007), The Burning Plain (2008) and The Road (2009), and a slew of blockbusters, such as Hancock (2008), Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Prometheus (2012), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), The Fate of the Furious (2017) and Atomic Blonde (2017).
