The Irish-American actor wore a collared shirt underneath a black dress jacket, while his wife wore a black blazer on top of a satin blouse.

Brosnan, known for his decades-long Hollywood career including as the titular 007 in several James Bond films, was honored at Thursday's event alongside fellow actor Molly Shannon as well as Oscar-winning visual-effects supervisor Richard Baneham, who worked on Avatar and its recent sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water.

Also known for his roles in Mamma Mia!, Cinderella, Fast Charlie, Black Adam and more, Brosnan is described in an official release as an "actor, film producer, environmentalist, philanthropist, artist and two-time Golden Globe Award nominee known for his rich and extensive career in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes as a producer."

“The success of Irish actors in the film industry in recent years has highlighted the remarkable talent in Ireland," US-Ireland Alliance founder Trina Vargo said in the release, adding specifically of Brosnan, "We’re thrilled to be honoring one of the most talented Irish legends, who paved the way.”

Brosnan married Keely (née Smith) in 2001 after the couple first met in 1994. They went on to welcome two sons: Dylan, 27, and Paris, 23. (Brosnan also shares late daughter Charlotte and sons Christopher, 51, and Sean, 40, with his first wife, the late actress Cassandra Harris.)

Brosnan opened up in a December 2023 interview with Fox News about the secret to keeping his marriage strong with Keely, 60.

"We like each other a lot. We love each other a lot," he said. "And we've been down the road, and we've seen many, many hardships as families do, as we all do."

"But watching someone grow up with you and grow old with you is a very spiritual journey," Brosnan continued of his wife. "To watch each other change … whatever it may be, the hair, the waist. But it's the love in the heart."

Keely told PEOPLE what she loves most about her husband in 2022 while the pair walked the red carpet at the premiere of Black Adam in New York City.

"His heart," she said at the time. "He has a big heart, generous, warm, kind heart."
