Sir Sean Connery has been selected by the American Film Institute's (AFI) Board of Trustees as the one deserves to receive the 34th AFI Life Achievement Award. This obviously is the highest honor for a career in film.
The award will be presented to Connery at a gala tribute in Los Angeles on June 8, 2006. Speaking about the matter, Howard Stringer, chairman of the AFI Board of Trustees, claims Connery as "an artist of the highest order."
Also he continues "Though best remembered for creating one of the great film heroes of all time, his talents transcend typecasting. His body of work not only stands the test of time, but illuminates a career more extraordinary than James Bond himself."
