The Australian double Oscar winner collected her award in person at the ceremony in Valencia.

The Spanish Film Academy created the award for ‘personalities who contribute to cinema as an art that unites cultures and spectators from all over the world’. 

The 53-year-old was chosen as  ‘an extraordinary figure’ and ‘an actor who has played unforgettable characters that are already part of our memory and our present’ said an academy spokesman.
