Congratulations are in order!

Martial arts expert and actor Jackie Chan is all set to receive a lifetime achievement Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Chan, 62, the Hong Kong-born star of Hollywood movies such as Kung Fu Panda, The Karate Kid and the Rush Hour franchise, will join a few other recipients of the 2016 Governors Awards. Each will get an honorary Oscar statuette recognising their lifetime contribution to the film industry at a gala in Los Angeles next month. Jackie made his movie debut at the age of eight, and has acted, and sometimes written and directed, more than 30 martial arts movies in Hong Kong. This will be his first Oscar. In August, he was ranked the second-highest paid actor in the world by Forbes with estimated earnings of $61 million in 2016, just below Fast and Furious star Dwayne Johnson.
Actor-comedian Eddie Murphy will also be honoured with the Hollywood Career Achievement Award at the 20th annual Hollywood Film Awards next month. According to a report, the event will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles. Past honourees of the award include Robert De Niro, Glenn Close, Harrison Ford, Richard Gere, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Keaton and Robin Williams.
Murphy broke into show business in 1980 as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. He received Golden Globe Award nominations for his performances in Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places, The Nutty Professor and 48 Hrs.
