Nicole Kidman to be Honored at

2012 NYFF Gala

Congratulations to Nicole - she's being honored at the 50th NYFF on October 3rd. These types of galas are to honor those who have made significant artistic acheivement. The Paperboy will also be screened at the festival.

From Richard Pena, longtime director of NYFF -

“Nicole Kidman is one of film’s finest contemporary actresses. Since her breakthrough performance in TO DIE FOR and her bold and provocative appearances in Lars Von Trier’s DOGVILLE, Stanley Kubrick’s EYES WIDE SHUT, as well as her awarding-winning portrayal of Virginia Woolf in Stephen Daldry’s THE HOURS, Kidman has insisted on finding roles that are complex, bold and demanding. We are excited to honor her with a tribute at the New York Film Festival.”

The evening will include an on stage conversation with Nicole, much like the Santa Barbara tribute. Nicole is among a select group of artists, including the NYFF director, to be honored in this way. Normally the Film Society of Lincoln Center holds the event outside of the festival. Congrats again to Nicole!

Don't worry, they still think Capitol dropped Keith as an artist on their roster. They have no clue about anything! LOL

Nope, they sure don't. I'm laughing at them trying to make sense of the V magazine article. I said a long time ago, the more you let them blabber on about all they "know", the more they prove they don't know much at all. Bahaha!

Congrats on the honor, Nicole!
