The Golden Boot Awards this year will honor a femme star along with the rough and tough hombres who have delighted moviegoers for the 24-year history of the awards.
The Motion Picture and Television Fund benefits from the event to be held Aug.12 at the BevHilton. The femme toastee is Ann-Margret.
Her list of film credits range from musicals, like “Bye Bye Birdie” and “Viva Las Vegas” with Elvis Presley to comedies, but she also co-starred with John Wayne in “The Train Robbers” and with Kirk Douglas and Arnold Schwarzenegger in “The Villain.”
And, to date, these rough and tough guys will also be honored: Wes Studi whose credits range from “Crazy Horse,” “Streets of Laredo,” and Geroninmo.”
Also, Powers Boothe (who is currently playing Cy Tolliver in “Deadwood” and includes “Tombstone” in his long list of credits) as well as Buddy Van Horn (who often works with Clint Eastwood — as in “Mystic River”) will be honored.
The Golden Boot will grow as the award night nears.
