The Hong Kong actor was one of four industry veterans who received honorary Oscars for their career achievements at the Governors awards in Los Angeles.
Jackie Chan was awarded Saturday night by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences.
Presenting the award Tom Hanks acknowledged that the blend of slapstick comedy and martial arts virtuosity for which the star became famous was “historically underrepresented at the Oscars”.
Chain in his turn said: “Standing here is a dream. After 56 years in the film industry, making more than 200 films, breaking so many bones, finally this is mine.”
