Hollywood actress Julia Roberts has been named the winner of the
2007 American Cinematheque Award.
The Pretty Woman star was chosen unanimously by the
nonprofit organization's selection committee which honors career
achievements, a US magazine reported. Roberts, who won an Oscar for
Erin Brockovich in 2001, will collect the prize at a ceremony in
Beverly Hills on October 12.
Actors, directors and writers -- including Steven Spielberg,
Martin Scorsese, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman -- have been honored
at the ceremony every year since its inception in 1986. Last year,
Roberts presented fellow actor George Clooney with the award after
he landed the annual honour.
