Michael J. Fox is awarded an honorary Oscar

Good things come to those who wait, it’s usually hot, and so now even in the case of the iconic film actor Michael J. Fox. The now 61-year-old star has had a crackling career to say the least with several unforgettable roles under his belt, perhaps especially then as Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy and Scott Howard in Teen Wolf. But of course also in the role of Alex Keaton in Five in the Family, Mike Flaherty in Spin City and of course when he lent his voice to Stuart Little.

During the early ’90s, Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, something he later chose to devote most of his waking time to fighting. Among other things, he has founded a foundation that raises money for Parkinson’s research under the name Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research to help others in the fight against the disease.

For his contributions to both the film industry and his contributions to the fight against the disease that has become such a big part of his life, the American film organization AMPAS has now decided to award Michael J. Fox an honorary Oscar. Something that will happen later this year during the Governors Awards in November. Peter Weir, Diane Warren and Euzhan Palcy will also be present, who will also be honored with the same award.

Well deserved and incredibly fun for Fox. Which of his many roles is your personal favorite?
