Harvard Arts Medal
  • Matt will receive the 2013 Harvard Arts Medal at a ceremony on 25 April. Details from the Harvard Magazine (photo by Sam Jones is at the site).

    The Office for the Arts at Harvard and Radcliffe has announced that the Harvard Arts Medal for 2013 will be awarded to actor and writer Matt Damon ’92. Damon will receive his medal on April 25 in Sanders Theatre, kicking off this spring’s Arts First festival, scheduled for April 25 through 28. More than 1,000 performers will take part in the plethora of events during Arts First weekend, a showcase for student and faculty creativity at Harvard.

    Re: Harvard Arts Medal

    It's awarded to former Harvard attendees. Tommy Lee Jones received it last year.

    (Apologies - did not intend to delete I's post this is responding to.)

    Matt and Lucy are on vacation (same timing as last year).

    Going to turn into a raving fan girl. Love the pic, he's just lovely to look at, great news that he's getting the award from Harvad too!

    For any UK fans House of Lies is shown on Sky Atlantic. Didn't watch series 1 last year, but will look out for Matt's episode in series 2. Marcia

    Re: Harvard Arts Medal

    I suppose it was my comment? If yes, no problem, I post it twice! It wasn't too mushy, I believe.
    I'm very happy for Matt getting this medal. From his home town and his own university! It's a consolation for no Oscar nomination. Congratulation, Matt!

    Re: Harvard Arts Medal

    Apologies B - I was in a deleting mood. Great photo, but it's quite old.

    The timing of the award may help with the Monuments Men filming dates, which is scheduled to start on 1 March, mostly around Berlin.

    Re: Harvard Arts Medal

    There's been so much information that it has been impossible for me to keep up! In adittion, reading all those articles and critics (some of them really good) while I can't actually see the movie is a little frustrating.

    Harvard Arts Medal Congratulations to Matt!!!
    I wondered if he would ever go back to finish, but he's said no in the past.
    I'd like him to finish his studies and graduate.

    Kimmel. I don't like him. I don't get why someone like him has a tv show, that's just bad.

    MDC, do you think Matt will attend the Oscars?

    I think in time, Harvard will/should give Matt an honorary doctorate degree!!

    Matt is very unlikely to attend the Oscars.

    Harvard doesn't typically give out honorary degrees, but it's a pretty remarkable list, including Walt Disney and Winston Churchill:

    But you can nominate someone for an honorary degree:

    Lance Armstrong

    A reminder that all of the reported stories about Matt playing Lance Armstrong are completely false. Matt said last year that he was too old, and there are no undertakings that he would be in the film.

    Matt is also no longer narrating a documentary about Lance (although it's still listed on his IMDB credits).

    Re: Lance Armstrong

    Felicity, thanks for looking into that Harvard list for us!
    I'm convinced Matt will earn one from them someday! He is in this for the longhaul and we've not seen his directing efforts yet. Between acting, directing, and philantrophy. That's great that there is a nomination form. We'll have to re-visit it in a few years :)
