Harrison Ford to Receive Much Deserved Career Achievement Award At Star Studded Critics Choice Awards This Sunday



Indiana Jones is finally getting his so called gold watch!

After 50 years in the business and countless blockbuster hits, Harrison Ford will get career lifetime achievement recognition this Sunday at the Critics Choice Awards.

The star studded CCA will air on the CW Network this Sunday at 8pm. Chelsea Handler, who was brilliant last year, is hosting again.

Keep in mind, the Golden Globes — which had lower ratings than reported — had no Lifetime Achievement winners this year. No one would accept it!

What a great choice! Ford starred in the first three Star Wars movies, and one of the last group, as well as five Indiana Jones smash hits, American Graffiti, Blade Runner, 42, Witness — a movie everyone should see if you don’t know it — Presumed Innocent, Working Girl, and dozens more. He’s currently in the hit TV series, Shrinking, on Apple TV.

The CCA’s are voted on by 600 actual film critics from print, online, and TV, all with actual credentials. They are also big indicator of Oscar nominations, which are coming soon.
