'Cuckoo's Nest' filmmaker Forman earns DGA prize
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two-time Academy Award winner Milos Forman is receiving the lifetime-achievement award from his peers at the Directors Guild of America.
The filmmaker who won Oscars for "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Amadeus" will be getting the guild honor at the directors union awards ceremony Feb. 2.
In announcing the award Wednesday, guild President Taylor Hackford called Forman one of the greatest filmmakers of modern times, saying the filmmaker finds the "universality of the human experience in every story."
Along with the directing Oscars for "Cuckoo's Nest" and "Amadeus," Forman also received the Directors Guild top prize for both films.
Among Forman's other films are "Ragtime," ''The People vs. Larry Flynt" and "Man on the Moon."
Forman is the 34th recipient of the guild honor, whose past recipients include Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Ingmar Bergman, Orson Welles and Alfred Hitchcock.
