The 48th AFI Life Achievement Award Tribute to Julie Andrews Rescheduled

AFI announced today it is moving the date of the 48th AFI Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute in celebration of Julie Andrews. The event was previously scheduled for November 11, but current safety and public health standards require it to be rescheduled in order to produce an event worthy of an artist who has given so much joy to the world.

The new event date and the air date for the premiere of the Emmy® Award-winning Tribute special on TNT will be announced in the coming months. Long considered one of the preeminent annual events for the entertainment and arts community, the AFI Life Achievement Award is a singular distinction bestowed upon artists “whose work has stood the test of time.”

Julie Andrews has always been a hero of mine. She is the epitome of a lady and exhibits the qualities of class and respect. I once had the opportunity to meet her at a book signing, I stood in line and when I got to her, I was so star struck I could not even speak. I would be honored if that ever happened again. Congratulations on your award. Well deserved for sure.
