Syriana star George Clooney will be toasted at a gala ceremony in October this year, where he will pick up the 21st American Cinematheque Award.

The honour is given each year to a film artist who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture.

“George Clooney is truly a Renaissance man. In a relatively short time he has proven his talents as an actor, director, writer and producer. He has managed to blend entertainment with political commentary as well

as combining charm, eloquence and good old-fashioned movie star charisma,”


quoted Cinematheque board chairman Rick Nicita, as saying.

The prize-giving ceremony will take place at a star-studded gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, California, and the tribute to the One Fine Day star will air on AMC in December.
