Rules don’t apply usually– but Warren Beatty has agreed to be saluted by the Museum of the Moving Image for lifetime achievement. The ceremony is November 2nd in New York. I’m sure Warren only agreed because his movie “Rules Don’t Apply” opens the next week. Warren hates publicity! But he’s going to have to do a little– “Rules” is buzzed as an Oscar contender. Warren is on track for Best Supporting Actor nods.
Warren will follow in the footsteps of past honorees including Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman, Steve Martin, Julianne Moore, Al Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts, Martin Scorsese, Kevin Spacey, Steven Spielberg, and Jimmy Stewart.
Michael Barker, co-chair of the museum and co-chief of Sony Pictures Classics said in a statement: “Warren Beatty helped invent the new Hollywood with the fresh, distinctly modern sensibility he has brought to his work in front of and behind the camera. He makes movies that are bold, provocative, and entertaining, and he has had astonishing and prolonged success as an actor, director, producer, and writer. He has been one of the most beloved and honored creative figures in Hollywood, and the Museum is thrilled to salute his remarkable career.”
