LONDON - John Travolta is all set to receive the Golden Camera award for best international actor.
The US actor will collect one of Germany’s top entertainment honours at a ceremony in Berlin on 5 February.
The ‘Pulp Fiction’ star, 56, was praised by German listings magazine Horzu, organisers of the awards, as “one of the greatest actors in the world”.
“The way John Travolta chooses his roles and the variety of characters he portrays shows a lot of courage,” the BBC quoted Horzu as saying.
“He doesn’t follow the same pattern and always shows us a different face. By doing that he continues to amaze his audience.”
“Receiving the Golden Camera best actor international award is a huge honour for me,” said Travolta.
“I take great pride in my work and it’s wonderful to have it recognised in such a way.
“It’s going to be great to accept this award in person next month,” he added.
The award itself is an 18-carat, gold-plated replica of the first electronic TV camera. (ANI)
