The American Film Institute will bestow its highest honor, the Life Achievement Award, on Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton. The gala event will be televised June 8 on TNT.

Keaton serenaded Steve Martin when he received the award last year, The New York Post’s Page Six notes.

Keaton won an Oscar in 1978 for “Annie Hall” and has also received nominations for “Reds,” “Marvin’s Room” and “Something’s Gotta Give.”

She’s an Emmy nominee for her title role in the 1994 production “Amelia Earhart: The Final Flight,” and has been nominated for nine Golden Globes, winning trophies for “Annie Hall” and “Something’s Gotta Give.”

Howard Stringer, chair of the AFI Board of Trustees, said of Keaton: “Peerless in her mastery of both comedy and drama, she has won the world’s heart time and again by creating characters of both great strength and vulnerability.”
