Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis could not hide his delight at being awarded a prestigious honorary doctorate in New York City.

He received the honorary doctorate at the 108th Commencement Ceremony of top art school Juilliard at the Lincoln Centre, wearing colourful academic robes.

The star (56), who lives in Wicklow, attended the event with his glamorous wife Rebecca Miller.

AWARD

The actor, who won his third Academy Award this year for Lincoln, received the school's honorary doctorate in fine arts.

Juilliard cited the actor's film and theatre credits, including his 1989 run in Hamlet at London's National Theatre, in the decision to bestow the honour to him.

Those at the event were addressed by actress Laura Leggett Linney (49), star of The Truman Show. She herself received an honorary degree four years ago.
