*Denzel Washington and Dionne Warwick will be honored in Germany this weekend at the Golden Camera ceremony, one of the country’s top entertainment award events.
Washington, currently in theaters with Daniel Espinosa’s “Safe House,” picks up the Golden Camera for best international actor, while R&B legend Warwick will receive a lifetime achievement honor.
Also, Scarlett Johansson, who stars in Joss Whedon’s summer tentpole “The Avengers,” will receive the best international actress award, and Dutch jazz sensation Caro Emerald will be honored with the best music international award.
The Golden Cameras are arguably Germany’s most prestigious awards show, on par with the Oscars or the Emmys. Every year some 4-6 million Germans tune in to watch the live, three-hour Golden Camera broadcast.
Last year’s winners included John Travolta, Rene Zellweger and Michael J. Fox.
The 2012 Golden Cameras will be held Saturday, Feb. 4 in Berlin.
