Dame Helen Mirren will receive this year’s American Cinematheque Award.
The Oscar winner will become the third only British star to receive the prestigious award, following in the footsteps of legendary filmmaker Sir Ridley Scott and the late former James Bond, Sir Sean Connery.
It is awarded annually to “an exceptional artist in the entertainment industry who has devoted himself to his work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of film”.
The 77-year-old “Good Liar” actress will accept the award on November 4th at the famous Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

“Cinema audiences are enthralled by her talents in a career that shines brighter with each captivating performance.
“The American Cinematheque is proud and honored to present Helen Mirren with the 37th American Cinematheque Award.”
Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Julia Roberts, George Clooney and Samuel L. Jackson have already been honored with the award.
Marvel star Ryan Reynolds was the 2022 award winner.
Mirren has received numerous awards and is the only artist to have achieved both the American and British Triple Crowns of Acting.
