Five decades and more than 200 films later, the popular martial artist-actor finally received an Oscar award.

On Saturday, the Chinese actor and martial artist veteran star, Jackie Chan, finally received his much-deserved Oscar award at the annual Governor Awards in Los Angeles.

"After 56 years in the film industry, making more than 200 films, after so many bones, finally," Chan said during his speech while holding his honorary Oscar statuette.

Twenty-three years ago at Sylvester Stallone's house, the Chan saw an Oscar award and it was there that he decided to win one.

The actor recalled watching the ceremony with his parents and his father always asking him why he didn't have Hollywood's top accolade despite having made so many movies.

He praised his hometown Hong Kong for making him "proud to be Chinese," and thanked his fans, saying they were the reason "I continue to make movies, jumping through windows, kicking and punching, breaking my bones."

The actor was introduced by his "Rush Hour" co-star Chris Tucker, actress Michelle Yeoh and Tom Hanks, who referred to him as "Jackie 'Chantastic' Chan."

Hanks said it was especially gratifying to be able to acknowledge Chan's work because martial arts and action comedy films were two genres often overlooked during awards season.
