Paul Hogan to receive G'Day USA award for Shrimp on the Barbie ads

Australia's Hollywood elite, headed by Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban and Naomi Watts, will be out in force in Los Angeles to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the G'Day USA festival.

Each year organisers single out high-performing Aussies for special mention and on Saturday Paul Hogan will receive an award.

Hugh Jackman will present Hogan with an "Australian Icon" award for his pioneering work introducing Australia to a generation of Americans with his "throw a shrimp on the barbie" TV commercials and Crocodile Dundee films.
