The 40th recipient of the honor, MacClaine has enjoyed a long career in Hollywood and the theater. Nominated five times for an Academy Award, she finally won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Terms of Endearment in 1983. Her younger brother, actor Warren Beatty, was on hand to present her with the AFI prize.
