It was announced today that Ryan Reynolds will be the 36th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award in a tribute being planned for Thursday, November 17, 2022.
The Award Ceremony will take place at The Beverly Hilton. The event itself is an annual fundraiser for the non-profit organization that continues its year-round programming at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Los Feliz 3 Theatre in Los Feliz, and Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.
AC Board Chair Rick Nicita announced the selection by stating: “Ryan Reynolds is a Renaissance Man 2.0 for our times. He is an actor, a business entrepreneur, a writer, a comedian, a producer and a creative innovator on screen and off. Most important to us, he is a true modern movie star. He has reached the heights of stardom in movies shown on all platforms, in all genres ranging from comedies to dramas to action films or combinations of all three. His popular movies are too numerous to single out but most recently he has achieved unprecedented new levels of audience enthusiasm with DEADPOOL, THE ADAM PROJECT and RED NOTICE. The Canadian government recently designated him a ‘National Treasure’ and the American Cinematheque joins them in celebrating Ryan Reynolds as the 36th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.”
