Three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams is set to receive the Cinema Vanguard Award at the 2013 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The festival chose Adams for the honor because of her performance in The Master. Adams will pick up the award at a special ceremony on January 31st.
SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling stated: “Amy Adams is one of the gutsiest and most gifted actors working today. She embodies what the Cinema Vanguard Award is all about, and after her performance in The Master – the time has come to recognize her talent and versatility.”
The Cinema Vanguard Award recognizes an actor who “forged his/her own path – taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film.”
Adams joins a list of winners that includes Jean Dujardin & Bérénice Bejo, Nicole Kidman, Peter Sarsgaard, Christoph Waltz, Stanley Tucci, Vera Farmiga, Kristin Scott Thomas and Ryan Gosling.
The SBIFF runs January 24 – February 3, 2013. For info on the festival, visit www.sbfilmfestival.org.
