Annette Bening to Be Honored at Museum of the Moving Image’s Salute

The Museum of the Moving Image will pay tribute to Annette Bening at its 31st annual Salute on Dec. 13 in New York.

The event will include an award presentation featuring clips from Bening’s career, introduced by her friends and colleagues.

“On screen, stage, and television, Annette Bening is one of America’s finest living actresses,” said Michael Barker, co-chairman of the Museum’s board of trustees. “From her Broadway debut in Tina Howe’s ‘Coastal Disturbances’ to her emotionally complex performance last year in ’20th Century Women’ and now as movie star Gloria Grahame in the upcoming ‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,’ her stunning range as an actress has always been staggering and uncompromising. We at the Museum of the Moving Image have wanted to honor her for some time but there is no question in our minds that this is so obviously her moment.”

Bening is a four-time Oscar nominee, two-time Golden Globe winner, and Screen Actors Guild award winner. In addition to Paul McGuigan’s “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” upcoming projects for Bening include Michael Mayer’s adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s play “The Seagull,” Dan Fogelman’s drama “Life Itself,” and Christoph Waltz’s directorial debut “Georgetown.”

Past honorees who have received the Museum’s Salute include Warren Beatty, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Goldie Hawn, Tom Hanks, and Julianne Moore.
