DeNiro Receives AFI's Life Achievement Award
HOLLYWOOD – At a celebratory dinner on the weekend where he received the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award, Robert DeNiro was hailed
as the Marlon Brando of his generation.
The event, which took place at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles, was attended by DeNiro collaborators Barry Primus, Harvey Keitel, Robin Williams and
James Woods, all of whom told their own stories about the actor.
DeNiro, who is the 13th recipient of the award, which recognizes "talent (that) in a fundamental way advanced the film art," was also lauded for his
contributions to New York in the wake of September. 11.
DeNiro is by far my favorite actor. I watched the award show tonight on USA and never realized how many movies he was in. Over 100!
Some of my favorites are:
The Godfather Trilogy
The Deer Hunter
Analyze This & Analyze That
