The Statue has Arrived!
Michael Keaton with Gold Hugo
After a perilous cross-country journey, the Gold Hugo has landed in L.A.!
On October 24, 2014, the 50th Chicago
International Film Festival presented actor Michael Keaton with the
Founder's Award for his electrifying performance as an actor who hopes
to revive his moribund career in Alejandro G. Inarritu's daring comedy Birdman.
The Founder's Award is given to that one film or performance across all
categories that captures the spirit of the Chicago International Film
Festival for its unique and innovative approach to the art of the moving
"To pick a single film or performance
from this year's incredibly strong lineup of more than 150 films was
difficult, but an eagerly anticipated challenge - they all exemplify the
Festival's spirit of innovation and discovery. And yet, Michael
Keaton's performance in Birdman moved me deeply; It confirmed
that Keaton is not only one of our greatest American actors, but one
whose work will soon be reevaluated and further appreciated," said
Festival Founder and Artistic Director Michael Kutza.
