A lifetime of showtime: Out of all the luminaries in Hollywood, the prestigious American Film Institute chooses just one person to receive its highest honour, the AFI Life Achievement Award. This year, that person is living legend and powerhouse personality Shirley MacLaine. It’s an accolade well deserved by MacLaine, who debuted in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Trouble With Harry in 1955 and went on to win a Best Actress Oscar in 1984 for Terms of Endearment. She reaped six Oscar and Emmy nominations apiece, as well as seven Golden Globe trophies, before taking up a prolific career as an author, director and producer. Get a front-row seat to a star-studded tribute to this star for all ages—don’t forget the evening gown and black tie.
