The 44th AFI Life Achievement Award honors composer John Williams


Williams’ credits include more than 150 titles over the course of seven decades. He holds the record for the most Oscar nominations of any living person, with five wins and 49 nominations in total. He also received 22 Grammy Awards. The most known part of this activity is related to his collaboration with director Steven Spielberg for some big movies: “Jaws” (1975), “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) and “Schindler’s List” (1993). He already made the soundtrack for the “Star Wars” (1977). Williams also composed music for many important cultural events, such as the theme for the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986, as well as themes for four Olympic Games.
