hr/photos/stylus/34899-freeman_morgan_341x182.jpg Morgan Freeman has been named the 39th recipient of the American Film Institute’s AFI Life Achievement Award.

The award will be presented to Freeman at a gala tribute on on June 9 in Los Angeles and will be broadcast on TV Land PRIME later that month.

A five-time Academy Award nominee, Freeman won the Oscar for best supporting actor in 2005 for his performance in “Million Dollar Baby.”

“Morgan Freeman is an American treasure,” Howard Stringer, chair of the AFI board of Trustees, said in announcing the honor. “Across decades, whether playing a prisoner, a president or God, he embodies a calm authority that demands respect for the character and for the art form. His gifts to the cultural record are also underscored by his unmistakable voice that echoes through the hearts and minds of movie lovers around the world.”

Freeman is only the second black actor to receive the honor, which was also awarded to Sidney Poitier in 1992.

The actor’s credits include “Street Smart,” “Driving Miss Daisy,” “The Shawshank Redemption,” “Batman Begins” and its sequel “The Dark Knight.”

He next appears in the action movie “RED,” which Summit is releasing Friday.
