Russell Crowe will host the 30th annual American Cinematheque Award Tribute to Ridley Scott on October 14 at the Beverly Hilton. Crowe won the Best Actor Oscar for Scott’s 2000 Best Picture winner Gladiator, and the pair have also collaborated on American Gangster and A Good Year as well as Crowe productions Robin Hood and Body of Lies, to name a few. Matt Damon will make the presentation to Scott, and other in-person tributes include Noomi Rapace, Katherine Waterston, Sigourney Weaver and Kristen Wiig.
The same evening the Cinematheque will present its second annual Sid Grauman Award to Sue Kroll, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures. Bradley Cooper will present that award to Kroll prior to the Scott tribute.
