Museum to salute Spielberg

More kudos are in store for Steven Spielberg. After the recent sweep of virtually every critical honor for his film “Schindler’s List,” the helmer will be saluted by the American Museum of the Moving Image.

The museum gala, billed as New York’s largest annual gathering of movie and television stars, is set for Feb. 24 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. With the salute, Spielberg joins past honorees Sidney Lumet, Elia Kazan, James Stewart, Sidney Poitier, Mike Nichols, Robert De Niro, Barbara Walters and Al Pacino.

Spielberg was chosen before the release of “Schindler.” Museum officials cited his involvement in directing or producing six of the 20 top-grossing films of all time, including “Jurassic Park” and “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.”

Earlier this week, Spielberg was named best director and “Schindler” best picture by the National Society of Film Critics. Best pic nods also came from the New York and Los Angeles crix orgs and the National Board of Review.
