Carney is to receive $5,500 for his performance. Distinguished actor Art Carney (1918-2003) began as a comedian, moving into a sidekick role for others.

He is best known, however, for his role as Ed Norton, Jackie Gleason's pal in the classic '50s TV sitcom The Honeymooners. Later, personal problems caused him to leave the Broadway run of The Odd Couple. Carney soon returned to work as an actor, going on the win the Best Actor Oscar for his performance as a 72-year-old in Harry and Tonto (1974); he has also won several Emmys for his work on TV.
