Three-time Academy Award nominee Johnny Depp was honored at the Bahamas International Film Festival with the prestigious Career Achievement Award. Screen legend Sean Connery presented the actor with the award.
BIFF Founder and Executive Director Leslie Vanderpool said, “There is no actor better suited to receive BIFF’s highest honor, the Career Achievement Award,” (I’d have to agree on that). She adds, “Johnny Depp is one of the finest actors of our generation and is, simply put, an icon. We’re all tremendously excited to bestow him with this honor and celebrate his incomparable career. What makes this tribute to Johnny even more special is that he has a home in the Bahamas and possesses a true love and appreciation for the region and culture. This will be an amazing and magical event for everyone involved.”
We love that Johnny Depp is getting the recognition he deserves. He is an amazing actor with an undeniable ability to capture an audience and so many incredible films under his belt. He is humble too – “Whenever anybody say they are going to give me some kind of award, I’m always a little stupefied by the notion. The first thing I say is ‘why?'” stated the hottie to a group of reporters.
He is the perfect example of fine wine…Gets a whole lot better with time!
