That his father, 94-year-old movie legend Kirk, handed out the honour at a gala dinner in California, made it even more special.

“I am very happy to give this award to my favourite actor-producer who also happens to by my first-born son,” Kirk said.

“The first time I saw Michael act was in a play at UC Santa Barbara, so it is fitting that a career started here should be honoured here.”

Wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, who was dazzling in a glittery purple dress, watched proudly from the audience. 

The award is named after movie icon Kirk, who won an honorary Academy Award for 50 years as a creative and moral force in the motion picture community in 1996.
