For over close on 50 years, Jackie Chan has put his body on the line for his films.

The Chinese martial arts star has directed over 30 films, has become a household name and is currently ranked as the second highest-paid actor in the world - just below Dwayne Johnson. Yet, for all his achievements and commitment to filmmaking, Jackie Chan has never won an Oscar.

Until now, that is.

Jackie Chan will be awarded a Lifetime Achievement Oscar in November as part of the Governor's Awards. Chan, whose real name is Chan Kong-sang, was born in British Hong Kong and began acting in films from the age of eight and has appeared in close to 120 films during his career.
