Lethal Weapon star Danny Glover picked up the top honor at the 2011 Afro-Caribbean Arts Awards on Monday.
The actor was handed the Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his career accomplishments and activist work for minority rights at the sixth annual ceremony in Paris’ Theater du Chatelet.

The star-studded audience included Heroes star Jimmy Jean-Louis, reggae star Alpha Blondy and French actor Stany Coppet.

The awards show is to be broadcast on 18 September on French TV.

It’s the actor’s second French honor this month – he also picked up a trophy in recognition of his contribution to American cinema at the Deauville American Film Festival.
