Admin Note: *** I decided to change the one word in the article title, cause that might imply the SAG-AFTRA Strike is at fault and not right. Which is not.
I stand firmly by the SAG-AFTRA and everyone’s right to fair contracts.

The American Cinematheque awards, scheduled for Nov. 4, has been postponed amid the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.

Helen Mirren was previously announced to be the recipient of the 37th American Cinematheque Award, with Kevin Goetz and Screen Engine set to be honored with the Power of Cinema Award, presented by Hill Valley.

The new date for the annual awards ceremony, held at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, will be announced in the coming weeks.

In the initial announcement in June, American Cinematheque Board chair Rick Nicita explained why Mirren had been selected for the honor.

“Helen Mirren has won the Oscar, Tony and Emmy triple crown of acting, and is an unparalleled icon among actors. She has portrayed characters from queens to seductresses with a singular skill that has never lost its freshness or appeal,” Nicita stated. “She brings a savvy intelligence and emotional strength to all her roles because, as movie stars do, the camera shows us the essence of who they are. Movie audiences eagerly embrace her talents in a career that glows brighter with every captivating performance.”
