Golden Boot Honors Eastwood Westerns

Wednesday June 14 4:36 PM ET - Yahoo Movie News

Two-time Oscar winner Clint Eastwood will add another award to his collection: a Golden Boot.

Eastwood, 76, will receive the Founders Award from the Motion Picture & Television Fund at the 24th annual Golden Boot Awards, to be held Aug. 12 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, it was announced Tuesday.

The awards were established in 1982 to recognize those performers, stunt people, producers and directors who have furthered the tradition of the Western on film and in television.

Eastwood won a best director's Oscar for 1992's Western drama "Unforgiven." He also won a directing Oscar for 2004's "Million Dollar Baby."

He is the second director to be honored with the Founders Award, which is not presented every year. John Ford, who directed Western classics such as 1956's "The Searchers" was honored in 1997.

Go Clint! :)
