Los Angeles: Hollywood's elite paid tribute to Sean Connery, who received the American Film Institute's annual lifetime achievement award. Directors Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, and actors Harrison Ford, Andy Garcia and Mike Myers were among the stars who cheered on the legendary actor at the ceremony held at the Kodak Theatre on Thursday. Mr. Myers wore a tuxedo jacket and a kilt to honour the Scottish actor. ``He's extremely professional, very talented and has an amazingly strong presence on the screen,'' Mr. Lucas said. Mr. Connery thanked the audience for ``one hell of an evening.'' ``I got my big break when I was 5 years old, and it's taken more than 70 years to realise it,'' he said. He is the 34th recipient of the award. AP
