Robert De Niro is to be honoured with a top acting prize at the Hollywood Film Awards.

The screen star will be given the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award for his performance as the father of a depressed high school teacher in comedy drama Silver Linings Playbook, which won the People's Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.

De Niro, 69, will be given the gong at a glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles next month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The awards are associated with the Hollywood Film Festival, and founder Carlos de Abreu said the actor's performance in the movie is "outstanding".

He added: "Robert De Niro is not only highly regarded for his body of work as an actor, producer and director, but also for the passion, integrity, and dedication he brings to his performances on camera, as well as his intense off-camera preparation and study of the characters he brings to life."

Other stars due to be honoured at the ceremony include Marion Cotillard and Judd Apatow.
