“It’s not often that an actor with the depth, wisdom and range of someone like Bryan Cranston comes along,” Rivers said. “But when they do, it’s undeniably exciting and a joy to watch. The Maui Film Festival is over the moon about having Mr. Cranston join us on Maui to be honored with the 2016 Navigator Award.”
The 17th edition of the Hawaiian festival runs June 15-19 at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course. The award will be presented at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.
Cranston earned a lead actor Oscar nomination for his role in “Trumbo” earlier this year. HBO will air his latest, “All the Way,” a TV adaptation of the stage play that Cranston starred in, on May 21. Cranston won a lead actor for his starring role as President Lyndon B. Johnson in “All the Way.” The HBO version is produced by Cranston’s Moonshot Entertainment, along with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Tale Told Productions.
The Maui fest will announce more honorees and its film slate in the coming weeks.
