Five Decades And 200 Films Later, Jackie Chan Wins Oscar
When Jackie Chan saw an Oscar at Sylvester Stallone’s house 23 years ago, he said that was the moment he decided he wanted one.
On Saturday at the annual Governors Awards, the Chinese actor and martial arts star finally received his little gold statuette, an honorary Oscar for his decades of work in film.
“After 56 years in the film industry,
making more than 200 films, after so many bones,
finally,” Chan, 62, quipped at the star-studded
gala dinner while holding his Oscar.
The actor recalled
watching the ceremony with his parents and his
father always asking him why he didn’t have Hollywood’s top accolade despite having made so many movies.
