Pierce Brosnan will receive an honorary award for achievement in European cinema.
In a statement on the EFA website, the European Film Academy explained why the Irish actor is being given the award:
“Again and again he has upset us, touched us and inspired us – singing Abba songs as one of the fathers in “Mamma Mia!” directed by Phyllida Lloyd (2008), as the angry businessman and widower Philip in “Love Is All You Need” directed by Susanne Bier (2012) and as tough former agent Peter Deveraux in the action thriller “The November Man” directed by Roger Donaldson (2014).
From 1995 to 2002 he embodied the world’s most famous secret agent, James Bond, in “GoldenEye” (1995), “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1997) (for which he received an EFA nomination), “The World Is Not Enough” (1999), and “Die Another Day” (2002).
In addition to his work in front of the camera, Pierce Brosnan has long had a passion for the art of filmmaking. He launched his own production company and has produced 11 films to date including “The Nephew” (1998), “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1999), “The Match” (1999), “Evelyn” (2002), “Laws Of Attraction” (2004), “The Matador” (2005), “Shattered” (2007), “The Greatest” (2010), “The November Man” (2014) and “I.T.” (2016).
He has recently completed production on “The Foreigner“, a Martin Campbell film, co-starring Jackie Chan. He is currently filming “The Only Living Boy In New York” alongside Jeff Bridges for director Marc Webb and will next star in “Across The River And Into The Trees“, based on Ernest Hemingway’s classic novel of the same name and directed by Martin Campbell.
It is a great pleasure for the European Film Academy to present the award European Achievement in World Cinema to Pierce Brosnan for his impressive dedication to cinema.”
