All quality work.

His best works are from before his Hollywood debut.

Well sure! He was already 44 before his first true "Hollywood" movie debuted in 1998 ("Rush Hour"). "Rumble in the Bronx" was a Hong Kong film from 1995 repackaged for the US market. Martial arts actors take a beating even when the fights are scripted and he had been doing them for a while before Hollywood called. I'm not surprised at all that his fights were more active prior to his Hollywood days.

He's worked hard enough for it (not like Obama winning a Nobel Prize for nothing) he does his own stunts

Well deserved, there are quite a couple of other Chinese action stars that ought to be given honorary awards too, I guess Jackie is receiving his because of his "hollywood" impact.
