It’s such a delight to share two pieces of news that happened right after the other this month involving Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen, two well-respected martial artists in the entertainment industry.
Jackie Chan, 62, receives an Honorary Award at the 2016 Governors Award in Hollywood. It is a special award given to individuals with exceptional achievements and even though it is not presented during the Academy Awards, it bears the same gold Oscar statuette.
I literally only heard about it because someone sent me a youtube video, which goes to show that good things go viral, it’s not all bad you guys. A big congrats to the legendary filmmaker, actor, stuntman and entertainer. Check out his speech, it’s quite inspiring.
