    Actor Reeves to Receive World Stunt Award

    Yet another "very important" award show. :rolleyes

    Apr 28, 7:37 PM (ET)

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Keanu Reeves will be honored for his work in action movies at the upcoming World Stunt Awards.

    The awards, which recognize the men and women who put their lives at risk to make fights, explosions and tall-building falls on TV shows and movies look more realistic, will be presented May 16.

    Nominees were selected from 19 films, including "Kill Bill - Vol. 1,""Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,""Bad Boys II,""Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and "The Last Samurai." Categories include best fight, best fire stunt and best work with a vehicle.

    Carmen Electra and Dennis Hopper are set to host the event, which will be taped at Paramount Studios for broadcast on Spike TV on May 26.

    The 39-year-old Reeves will receive an honorary trophy for best action movie star. His films include "The Matrix" trilogy, "Speed" and "Chain Reaction."

    "Keanu's work with 'The Matrix' trilogy was some of the best from an actor of his generation," said Gernot Friedhuber, executive producer of the show. "He has consistently shown an ability to learn from the stunt teams on his many films and has expressed a genuine interest in the field of stunt work."

    Ronnie Rondell, the renowned stunt artist whose 50-year career includes "Speed,""Lethal Weapon,""Twister" and "Days of Thunder," will receive the World Stunt Association's lifetime achievement award.
