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."
