Cinema Expo honors Zaentz

Oscar-winning producer Saul Zaentz has been selected to receive the Albert R. Broccoli Award of Excellence at this year’s Cinema Expo Intl. Convention in Amsterdam.

Zaentz will be honored July 21 during closing-night festivities.

Convention co-managing director Jimmy Sunshine described Zaentz as “as one of the great independent producers” whose “standards are the highest.”

Zaentz’s “The English Patient” walked away with nine Oscars in March, including best picture, director and supporting actress. Zaentz also received the Irving Thalberg Award.

In 1975, Zaentz’s first film, “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” took five Academy Awards including best picture. “Amadeus” in 1984 won eight Oscars including picture, director and actor.

Other pictures he produced include “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” “The Mosquito Coast,” “At Play in the Fields of the Lord,” “Three Warriors” and “Lord of the Rings.”

The Broccoli award is named for the late producer of the James Bond films, arguably the most successful franchise in the history of the movies.
