Director Mike Nichols has been chosen to receive the 38th American Film Institute's life-achievement award.
Nichols, whose films include "The Graduate," "Working Girl," "Silkwood" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", will receive the AFI honor at a ceremony next summer.
The 77-year-old Nichols joins past AFI award recipients such as "Virginia Woolf" star Elizabeth Taylor, "Silkwood" star Meryl Streep and "Graduate" star Dustin Hoffman.
Nichols' most recent film was 2007's "Charlie Wilson's War," starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. He also is a Tony Award-winning stage director and made the Emmy-winning miniseries "Angels in America."
