Oliver Stone.
The 48th Annual Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Czech Republic announced today that American auteur Oliver Stone will be honored with the Crystal Globe Award for outstanding artistic contributions to world cinema. While Stone's last film was the less-than-outstanding "Savages" in 2012, the writer-director has won three Oscars and helmed many memorable classic films, from "Salvador," "Born on the Fourth of July," and "Platoon" to "Nixon," "JFK" and "Wall Street."

In addition, thrice-Oscar nominated Polish director Agnieszka Holland (holocaust drama "In Darkness") will serve as president of the jury. Holland and her jury will give out Crystal Globe Awards for Best Feature, Actor, Actress, Director and a Special Jury Prize.

The festival runs June 28 to July 6, and the lineup will be announced in June.
