Jim Carrey to Recieve Film Award

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) _ Jim Carrey will receive the American Film Institute's Star Award at the 2005 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in February.

Carrey, winner of Golden Globes for ``The Truman Show'' and ``Man on the Moon,'' will be honored in a career tribute hosted by Conan O'Brien.

The comedy festival will be held Feb. 9-13 in Aspen.

``Jim Carrey is the rarest kind of actor,'' said Jean Picker Firstenberg, chief executive officer of the American Film Institute. ``Jim has proven he can do comedy or drama in films that are both creatively brilliant and reach audiences of all ages.''

Carrey's movies also include the comedies ``Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,'' ``Dumb & Dumber,'' ``Liar Liar'' and ``Bruce Almighty,'' and he has taken dramatic roles in ``The Truman Show'' and ``The Majestic.''

Previous Star Award winners include Albert Brooks, Billy Crystal, Rob Reiner, the Monty Python troupe, Steve Martin, Mike Myers and Diane Keaton.
