Double Academy Award winning actor, Jack Lemmon, was honoured by the U.S. National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences at a celebrity lunch at the Plaza Hotel in New York on Tuesday (18 February).
Lemmon, recently turned fifty, has starred in 31 films as well as many television shows.
His comic style -- usually portraying a well-meaning but exasperated middle American -- has brought him fame in such motion pictures so "The Apartment", "The Odd Couple" and "The Out-of-Towners."
He is regarded in the acting profession as one of its most likeable and civilised members.
After receiving an award for his achievements, he spoke to the guests -- including dozens of film, television and Broadway personalities -- about his early experiences in the profession.
