Jane Fonda Was 'Overwhelmed' By Lifetime Achievement Award
Accepting the prize in fluent French, the 69-year-old paid tribute to her late father Henry Fonda, saying: "I have the feeling my father is with me tonight. The whole Fonda family thanks you."
Only three other people have been honored with such an award: French directors Alain Resnaid and Gerard Oury, and French actress Jeanne Moreau.
Fonda was not the only actor celebrating last night - Russian Konstantin Lavronenko and South Korean actress Jeon Do-yeon were named Best Actor and Best Actress respectively.
Lavronenko was awarded for his role in The Banishment, while Do-yeon's role in Secret Sunshine sealed her win for the festival's top acting honors.
