During his distinguished career Paul Simon has been the recipient of many honours and awards including 12 Grammy Awards, three of which (Bridge Over Troubled Water, Still Crazy After All These Years, and Graceland) were albums of the year.
In 2003 he was given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as half of the duo Simon & Garfunkel. He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a recipient of the Johnny Mercer Award and is in the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Simon & Garfunkel and as a solo artist.
His song 'Mrs. Robinson' from the motion picture 'The Graduate' was named in the top ten of The American Film Institute's 100 Years 100 Songs. He was a recipient of The Kennedy Center Honours in 2002 and was named as one of Time Magazine's 100 People Who Shaped Our World in 2006.
In 2007, Mr. Simon was awarded the first annual Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Named in honour of the legendary George & Ira Gershwin, the newly created award recognized the profound and positive effect of popular music on the world's culture, and is given annually to a composer or performer who's lifetime contributions exemplify the standard of excellence associated with the Gershwin's. In 2011, Mr. Simon was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences.
