Jamie Lee Curtis to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

Horror legend Jamie Lee Curtis will receive the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the 56th Annual International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) Publicists Awards next month, celebrating a monumental four decades in acting. The awards luncheon will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday, February 22, 2019.

Calls for a Lifetime Achievement Award swirled through the twittersphere after her appearance presenting at the Golden Globes, where Ben Stiller mentioned Halloween’s massive success as the highest-grossing film debut with a woman lead over 55.

"We are thrilled to honor Jamie Lee Curtis, who has created a celebrated body of film and television work that spans many genres. Who wasn't frightened by her Laurie Strode character in Halloween – and just as terrified in her reprise portrayal 40 years later? Her artistic talents have generated a legacy of characters that are embedded in our minds forever.  We are honored to spotlight her varied and award-winning career," said ICG National President Steven Poster, ASC.

Curtis began her acting career in horror, serving as the lead in John Carpenter’s Halloween. She has since starred in a slew of horror films, including Terror Train, Prom Night, The Fog, and several Halloween sequels, along with two seasons of Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens. Though she has a storied and prolific career, she has never shied away from continuing to take on roles in horror - a genre in which many A-list actors steer clear.

We at All Horror are thrilled that the Ultimate Scream Queen is being honored for her achievements. Perhaps with this recognition following Halloween’s release, and more A-list stars such as Jordan Peele coming into the fold, our favorite genre will begin to see the respect and recognition it deserves.
