Johnny Depp is a fearless, once-in-a-generation talent with a chameleon-like ability to inhabit any role. With years of astonishing performances, Johnny has truly earned this Generation Award, and we look forward to honoring him with a can’t-miss tribute at this year’s Movie Awards.
He's created so many iconic characters throughout his career: Captain Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissorhands, Raoul Duke, etc!!
It's about time he's given the recognition he's deserved! He's truly in a league of his own.
