Alicia Vikander, O’Shea Jackson and Geza Rohrig to Be Honored at Santa Barbara Film Festival

Alicia Vikander, O’Shea Jackson and Geza Rohrig will round out the group of 2016 Virtuosos Award recipients, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival (SBIFF) announced Thursday.

The distinguished award acknowledges a small selection of actors for their standout film performances over the past year, as well as highlight defining work from their overall acting careers.  The 2016 recipients will be recognized at an award presentation event at the Arlington Theatre during the 31st edition of the festival.

After concluding her peak acting year, Vikander will be recognized for her performances in “Testament of Youth,” “Ex Machina,” and “The Danish Girl.”  The SBIFF will honor Jackson for his breakout role in “Straight Outta Compton” and Rohrig for his performance in “Son of Saul.”

SBIFF’s previously announced Virtuosos Award recipients — Elizabeth Banks (“Love & Mercy”), Joel Edgerton (“Black Mass”), Paul Dano (“Love & Mercy,” “Youth”) and Jacob Tremblay (“Room”) — will also be honored at the award presentation.

“These performers have used their craft and respective roles to transport us through the varied lives of their characters,” said SBIFF executive director Roger Durling. “We have followed them along their artistic pursuits and are excited to join them in next steps of their journeys.”

Past Virtuosos Award honorees include Viola Davis, Rooney Mara, J.K. Simmons, Eddie Redmayne, Michael B. Jordan, Emily Blunt and Melissa McCarthy.

The 31st annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival runs from Feb. 3 to 13 and additional honorees will be announced in the coming weeks.
