Harrison Ford is slated to be honored with the Career Achievement Award during the upcoming Critics Choice Awards on Sunday, January 14.
Regarded as one of the premier movie stars of his era, Ford has left an enduring mark on the film industry with his notable roles in some of the biggest blockbusters in history.
