Here’s some great news for the fans of Judi Dench.

The veteran actress will reportedly receive the award late in November, at a black-tie gala dinner.
100-year-old Kirk Douglas was overjoyed to hear this. He said, "I am especially delighted to learn that Dame Judi Dench will accept the award that bears my name. She is a consummate artiste of stage and screen who is a particular favourite of mine. I wish I could have had the joy of working with her, but I am happy for the pleasure of seeing my name coupled with hers in support of the Santa Barbara Film Festival." Douglas will turn 101 on December 9.
