Pop star Kylie Minogue and actor Robert de Niro are to receive Germany's top showbiz honour, the Golden Camera, organisers have announced.

De Niro, 64, will receive the lifetime achievement award, while Minogue, 39, will be honoured as best international music act.

Now in its 43rd year, the Golden Cameras reward excellence in film, television and music.

Previous winners include Bruce Willis, George Clooney and Cate Blanchett.

The Golden Camera is awarded in seven national and five international categories.

"Robert De Niro has made himself a legend in his own time. The movie industry owes him for innumerable never-to-be-forgotten moments," the jury panel said.

While Minogue will receive her honour "for her brilliant comeback after recovering from cancer".

The award itself is a 600g 18 carat gold-plated sterling silver replica of the first electronic TV camera.

The ceremony will be held at Berlin's Axel Springer Arcade on 6 February.
