, one of the most talented actors Hollywood has ever had, will be awarded with the Motion Picture Association of America's inaugural humanitarian award, the Jack Valenti Humanitarian Award.

The award, to be presented annually to an individual in the motion picture industry whose work has reached out positively and respectfully to all countries, creeds and cultures, will be presented at a private dinner dubbed "The Business of Show Business," Tuesday Feb 6th in Washington, D.C.

"For decades, (Eastwood) has exemplified the decency and goodness of spirit in his moviemaking," MPAA Chairman Dan Glickman commented. "His two acclaimed movies about World War II's infamous battle at Iwo Jima present a remarkable work of looking at both sides of a moment in history and providing a commentary on its impact in the lives of those who experienced it. These films exemplify the true power of movies to tell human stories and inspire national conversation."
