American Cinematheque Honors Al Pacino

The night when the American Cinematheque presented its annual award to Al Pacino was a classic, Hollywood black-tie soiree — except for Jon Voight arrived at the BevHilton with Diana Ross … and then self-parked. Are they dating? Has Diana Ross ever self-parked before?

Unfortunately, these questions weren’t addressed at the dinner in which Pacino was honored by colleagues like James Caan, Ed Harris, John Goodman, Marisa Tomei, Keanu Reeves, Charlize Theron and Voight, who admitted, “To sustain a career in this business is a total miracle.”

At the cocktail reception, American Cinematheque director Barbara Smith said the key to the tribute dinner was “honoring an icon without being stodgy.” Which in Pacino’s case meant the usual slew of film clips and lots of actors-praising-actors speeches (including Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep via taped messages).

All of which seemed to overwhelm the man of the hour, who joked that the tribute was “almost as wild as what happened in my life over the last 120 years. The bottom line is you feel lucky, because you know what not having it is like.”
