Hollywood veteran Patricia Neal has been honoured with a lifetime achievement award at the Nashville Film Festival.
The 82-year-old Nashville, Tennessee-born star began her career on Broadway, but later graduated to the big screen, winning a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in 1963's Hud alongside Paul Newman.
Neal - who was married to legendary British author Roald Dahl - was presented with the prize at a ceremony on Tuesday (22Apr08) night by fellow actor Lyle Lovett, her co-star in Robert Altman's 1999 film Cookie's Fortune.
Neal is currently filming forthcoming movie Flying By with Billy Ray Cyrus.
