The Harry Dean Stanton Award
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Let's take a moment to appreciate character actor Harry Dean Stanton's prolific credits, from a Xenomorph-offed engineer in Alien to a coked up repo man in, well, Repo Man, and from Molly Ringwald's father in Pretty in Pink to a megalomaniacal polygamist in Big Love. And he's still going: At the age of 90 years young, he's set to reprise his small Twin Peaks role in next year's revival. So let's not take a moment to appreciate Stanton; let's devote an entire star-studded evening and award to him. Karen O, the charismatic Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman, tops a lineup that includes Kris Kristofferson, Father John Misty, John C. Reilly, Ed Begley Jr. and more in a musical and cinematic salute and award presentation to the veteran actor, who'll also be in attendance. The event doubles as a fundraiser for the Vidiots Foundation, the kickass Santa Monica video store's recently hatched film library non-profit.
