Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, already slated to accept an American Cinematheque award in December, will be feted again with the Honorary Golden Nymph Award at the 54th annual Monte-Carlo Television Festival.

Fest CEO Laurent Puons made the announcement Tuesday that H.S.H. Prince Albert of Monaco will present the award during the opening ceremony of the festival, which runs in June 7-11 in Monte Carlo.

Bruckheimer’s films, which include “Top Gun,” “Armageddon,” “Pearl Harbor” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, have culled $16 billion worldwide. His television work includes the long-running “CSI” franchise, “Without a Trace,” “Cold Case,” “Dark Blue,” “The Amazing Race” and “Hostages.”

Bruckheimer’s films and movies have also earned 41 Academy Award nominations with six wins, 118 Emmy noms with 22 wins and 23 Golden Globe noms with four wins.

“If it is possible for a producer to become a worldwide brand, Jerry Bruckheimer is that producer,” Puons said in a statement. “His work is seen throughout the world and has captured the imagination of multiple generations who have experienced the very best in filmed entertainment that he has produced.”

This comes after some other big news for the producer. It was announced last month that Disney would not be renewing its first-look deal with him for 2014, although he will still work with the company on the fifth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Previous Golden Nymph honorees include Dick Wolf, Anne Sweeney, David E. Kelley, Marcy Carsey and Ted Turner.
