AMC to air Cinematheque ceremony

Gala to honor Washington

Cabler AMC has picked up broadcast rights to the American Cinematheque Award gala, which this year honors Denzel Washington.

Tom Hanks will present his “Philadelphia” co-star with the statuette at the 17th annual benefit gala, to be held Dec. 6 at the Beverly Hilton, and Jamie Foxx will host the ceremony.

AMC will tape the evening for broadcast in March. Previously, TNT had aired the show.

Participants will include Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Cedric the Entertainer, Robert Downey Jr., Ethan Hawke, Michael Keaton and Keanu Reeves.

The American Cinematheque Award recognizes an actor, director or writer in the entertainment industry who is “fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture.” Previous honorees include Martin Scorsese, Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster and Bruce Willis.
