The European Film Academy will honor 63-year-old Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar with the European Achievement in World Cinema award at the upcoming 26th annual European Film Awards ceremony, to be held on December 7 in Berlin, Germany.

The ceremony will be streamed live on the EFA website

In 1988, "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" brought Almodovar international recognition, and he received the Best Young Film award at the first European Film Awards. His body of work includes "Talk to Her," "Volver," "Bad Education," "All About My Mother," and this year's horniness-at-high-altitude comedy "I'm So Excited!"
