AFI's 40th Lifetime Achievement Award will be given to Oscar-winner Shirley MacLaine at a gala tribute on June 7.

AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale, the president and CEO of AFI, says:

“What is not to love about Shirley MacLaine? The challenge will be how to fit it all into one evening because hers is a life that has gone from movies to television to Broadway, books and beyond. She defines the term renaissance woman and what an honor for the AFI to shine a proper light to all she’s given the world. Then when you get into her films, it’s across genres, it’s across decades. This is a force of nature all to our benefit."

MacLaine has been nominated for six Oscars; she won for Terms of Endearment at the 1984 Academy Awards. She was also nominated for eight BAFTAs (she won for The Apartment and Ask Any Girl) and a slew of other awards. Clips below:

MacLaine joins past winners Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Meryl Streep, Barbra Streisand, Morgan Freeman, Kirk and Michael Douglas, Sidney Poitier, Alfred Hitchcock, James Cagney, Jimmy Stewart as well as her younger brother, Warren Beatty.
