Cinematheque award, filming begins
  • Matt will receive the American Cinematheque Award for 2010. Details at Variety:

    Matt Damon will be feted with the American Cinematheque Award at next year's event, which will air on ABC.

    Nod is the first time Damon has received an award commemorating his lifetime achievements.

    With Damon accepting the invitation, ABC jumped at the chance to broadcast the event, which AMC had televised the past four years.

    The Cinematheque would not confirm the honoree but said the show will be held March 27, so that it will follow awards season.

  • Photos of Matt arriving and leaving the set of The Adjustment Bureau in New York are at PopSugar, Accidental Sexiness, here and here. Also seen on the set was producer Chris Moore.

    OMG!! that is so exciting and well deserving in an odd way, since he is soo young and yet has done so much! If it follows award season, is it assumed that he may get recognized for Informant or Invictus?? Anyway, this made my day! Yay Matt.

    american cinematheque award

    Congratulations to Matt! When you look at the list of previous honorees for the award, it's really quite impressive. It's a tribute to his reputation amongst his peers to be even considered for an award like this when so comparatively young.

    I recently saw a tv show in which an actor(not Matt) was being lauded, and a journalist said, "You can tell how great an actor he is by the great directors who've wanted to work with him." I instantly started thinking of Matt's A-list directors: Francis Coppola, Steven Speilberg, Gus Van Sant, Steven Soderbergh, Anthony Minghella, Robert Redford, Martin Scorcese, Clint Eastwood, Paul Greengrass.... Hard to beat, huh? And he's worked with all these people in about 12 years...amazing when you think about it.
