Michael J. Fox is supported by his family and co-star Christopher Lloyd at the Governors Awards in LA
Michael J. Fox was supported by his family along with Back To The Future co-star, Christopher Lloyd, as he gratefully accepted a high honor at the 13th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday in Los Angeles.
The now retired actor, 61, received the honorary Oscar known as the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award which is given to an individual, ‘whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.’
The Back To The Future alum was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991, and created the Michael J. Fox Foundation to help fund further research for the disorder in 2000.
Support: Michael J. Fox, 61, was accompanied by his wife, Tracy Pollan, and their four children at the 13th Annual Governors Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.
The Spin City star kept her look classic and sophisticated for the special night as an honoree.
He donned a black suit which he paired with a white dress shirt and black tie. The actor slipped into a pair of black sneakers to complete his overall ensemble.
The Emmy award-winner posed for an assortment of snaps next to his stunning wife, who was elegantly chic for the evening. The happy couple, who tied the knot in 1988, first met on the set of the popular sitcom series, Family Ties.
Tracy opted for a form-fitting, long-sleeved black sequin gown that fell down toward the ground.
The actress accessorised her look with dangly, silver earrings along with thin, rhinestone necklace. Her hair was parted in the middle and swept up into a stylish up do, allowing curled locks to border the sides of her face.

In an interview published by People last month in October, Michael expressed that, ‘My best life now is I enjoy my family so much.’
He further added that, ‘Tracy and the kids are amazing. I know that sounds boring, it sounds like a fairy tale, but we’ve been married thirtysomething years, so we’ve got something figured out.’
Also in attendance at the ceremony to be by their father’s side included his four children whom he shares with Tracy: Sam, 33, twins Aquinnah and Schulyer, both 27, and Esme, 21.
During the ceremony, Woody Harrelson presented the award to Michael, and they shared a brief embrace on stage. The two stars are not only good friends, but have also worked together in the past on the film, Doc Hollywood (1991).
