The American Cinematheque hosted the 35th Annual American Cinematheque Awards on Thursday, November 18, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, honoring Scarlett Johansson and Participant. Scarlett Johansson received the American Cinematheque Award, while Participant was honored with the Power of Cinema Award, accepted by Participant CEO David Linde. The event is an annual fundraiser for the non-profit organization that continues its year-round programming at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Los Feliz 3 Theatre in Los Feliz, and Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood (Grand Reopening 2022).

American Cinematheque’s Board Chairman, Rick Nicita, and President, Mark Badagliacca, kicked things off, welcoming guests and introducing Éric Nebot, the founder and CEO of Hill Valley. Nebot spoke about the power of cinematic storytelling and highlighted how Participant has been able to harness that power and inspire social change, before Oscar-winning filmmaker Tom McCarthy honored Participant with the 2021 Power of Cinema Award presented by Hill Valley, with Participant CEO David Linde accepting the award on behalf of the Company.

Jon Favreau, Andy Richter, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Feige, and Thomasin McKenzie each took to the stage throughout the night to toast Scarlett Johansson. Favreau reminisced about meeting her for the role of Black Widow and discussed her incredible sense of professionalism, while Cornish remembered being moved by Johansson’s performance in Lost in Translation. Curtis stepped onstage in a unique costume, entertaining the audience with a skit, while Feige highlighted Johansson’s talent as both an actress and producer. Finally, Jeremy Renner presented his “favorite human and superhero,” Scarlett Johansson, with the 2021 American Cinematheque Award.
