MADRID — Warren Beatty will not be on hand to collect his Donostia Prize at the San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival, which begins today.
Beatty has informed the fest’s organizers that he will not be travelling to accept the nod in person, given the uncertainty of the international panorama.
With Julie Andrews also a no-show for her Donostia, San Sabastian will postpone the awards ceremony for Beatty and Andrews until a later date, perhaps at next year’s 50th fest.
San Sebastian will, however, hold a Donostia award ceremony-tribute for Spanish thesp Francisco Rabal (“Nazarin,” “Tristana”), who died Aug. 29.
