Bacon won a best actor award from the BFCA in 1995
Actor Kevin Bacon is to be honoured for charity work at the Critics Choice Movie Awards, to be held on 15 January.
Bacon will receive the Joel Siegel Award, which recognises entertainers' philanthropy, from the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA).
Bacon's website SixDegrees.org, which invites visitors to make donations, has raised nearly $3m (£1.8m) since its launch three years ago.
The Philadelphia-born actor, 51, is currently filming comedy movie Super.
SixDegrees takes its name from the popular game, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, the aim of which is to connect Bacon with any other actor in history using the names of just six other actors as links.
