Jessica Lange Honored With Santa Barbara Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas Award

Jessica Lange will be the ninth recipient of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas award for excellence in film this year.

Lange, who won an Emmy in her first season on “American Horror Story,” will be presented with the award at a gala at Santa Barbara’s Bacara Resort and Spa on Nov. 16. She follows past recipients such as Quentin Tarantino, Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro and John Travolta.

Jessica Lange possesses the three key elements in making it in this crazy business: talent, beauty, and intelligence,” said Kirk Douglas in a statement, “all of which have served her well and continue to do so. It is my honor to give her my award.”

Lange won the Academy Awards for best actress and supporting actress for her roles in “Blue Sky” and “Tootsie” respectively. She was also nominated for best actress in four additional roles: “Frances,” “Country,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Music Box” and has been Emmy nominated the past two years for “American Horror Story.”

The Kirk Douglas award serves as a fundraiser to the annual festival, which will be celebrating its 30th anniversary from Jan. 27 through Feb. 5. This year’s festival will also include a three day film studies program for undergraduate film students to learn film appreciation, criticism and analysis from film educators.
