BERLIN (AP) - U.S. actors Scarlett Johansson and Denzel Washington have received Germany’s most prestigious film award as best international actors.

The 27-year-old Johansson said she was grateful that her work was also appreciated abroad as she received the Golden Camera Award late Saturday.

Actor Morgan Freeman was awarded a trophy for lifetime achievement, which the 74-year-old called “a great honor,” German news agency dapd reported.

The 47th ceremony of the Golden Camera Awards was held in German publishing house Axel Springer’s Berlin headquarters.
