Los Angeles – October 10, 2016 -- The Los Angeles Film Critics Association. has chosen Shirley MacLaine as the recipient of this year’s Career Achievement award. The prize will be given at the annual awards dinner to be held Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017, at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City.

LAFCA’s other top awards will be decided by the membership on Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016, and those honorees will join MacLaine at the January dinner.

“We are very excited to be giving the award to someone who has had such an illustrious, versatile acting career, and who has contributed so much to our collective enjoyment of movies,” said LAFCA president Claudia Puig.

“I’m thrilled with the honor by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the recognition and the encouragement,” said MacLaine, who will next be seen in the comedy The Last Word, opening in spring 2017.

To salute MacLaine, LAFCA will be sponsoring a shelf of her films at Vidiots—a movie rental store with over 50,000 films, including rare and hard-to-find titles. LAFCA encourages film lovers to stop by the Santa Monica store and check out the film choices.

The association will be dedicating this year’s awards ceremony to director Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential, Wonder Boys), who died on Sept. 20.
