Hopkins set for Donostia Award at fest

Banderas to present thesp career nod at San Sebastian

ROME — Oscar-winning actor Anthony Hopkins will receive the 1998 European Donostia Award for career achievement at the 46th San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival, which runs Sept. 17-26 in the Basque resort town.

Spanish star Antonio Banderas, who was a guest of the fest several times in his pre-Hollywood days, will return to San Sebastian to present the award to Hopkins prior to the European premiere screening of Martin Campbell’s action-adventure “The Mask of Zorro,” which co-stars the two actors.

A festival statement calls Hopkins one of the greatest actors in the world today, praising him for the charisma and vigor he brings to roles as diverse as Hitler, Picasso, Mussolini, Nixon, the Hunchback of Notre Dame and Hannibal “the Cannibal” Lecter.

The European Donostia Award was created in 1996 to flank San Sebastian’s international career trophy, the Premio Donostia, which traditionally goes to a Hollywood star. Previous recipients include Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau and Jeremy Irons.
