 Actor Michael J. Fox received an honorary Oscar

Back to the Future Star Michael J Fox received an honorary “Oscar” for his work, which raised $1.5 billion for Parkinson's disease research.

The actor received the Gene Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which awards the Oscars.

Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, a nerve disorder that causes tremors and other symptoms, at the age of 29. He later ended his acting career and founded the Disease Research Foundation to fund the search for a cure, according to the Globe and Mail.

Another actor, Woody Harrelson, presented the award to Michael J. Fox.
