    I would LOVE to see Sissy Spacek get some recognition for her wildly underrated career, but I know that’s not gonna happen.

    I think it could be Denzel Washington. I think he is a strong contender for this and/or Cecil B. DeMille Award. He has some projects coming up soon. 

    But I think the following should be strongly considered first:
    Robert Redford
    Glenn Close
    Diane Keaton
    Sally Field
    Gene Hackman
    Robert Duvall

    Redford has been asked before, but AFI and Sundance compete for the same fundraising dollars. I think that’s why he has passed.

    My guess would be one of the following (based on age, career, willingness to attend, and popularity enough for AFI to sell all of the tables)…

    Denzel Washington
    Michael Caine
    Sally Field
    Diane Keaton
    Robert Duvall
    Julie Andrews
    Jeff Bridges
    Jessica Lange
    Eddie Murphy
    Bill Murray
    Joel & Ethan Coen
    Ron Howard

    I feel like this would be the right time to give it to Jessica Lange. Not sure if she is departing from the screen to focus on theater and her photography but before she is out of the picture in terms of popularity from American Horror Story, this would be an opportune time to honor her

    The Lincoln Center finally honored him this year. Maybe there’s a better chance now for AFI?

    Im watching the list of people never to recieve this award and im stunned that Paul Newman, Brando, Robin WIlliams, John Wayne didnt recieve this award, while for example Steve Martin did.

    Im watching the list of people never to recieve this award and im stunned that Paul Newman, Brando, Robin WIlliams, John Wayne didnt recieve this award, while for example Steve Martin did. 

    From what I understand people like Marlon Brando, Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Stanley Kubrick and Woody Allen have all refused the award and I’m beginning to think Paul Newman falls in that category as well…at least I hope so.  

    I use to love the AFI awards. I loved it when they use to take themselves VERY SERIOUSLY and honored individuals who, “In a fundamental way advanced the art of film and who’s work has stood the time of time.”

    That’s no longer the case and hasn’t been for several years. Anytime you honor Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford before you honor Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Meryl Streep; or anytime you can honor people like George Lucas, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas but never honored Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman when they lived long enough to be honored…there’s something simply wrong about that!  IMO

    It’s a surprising but deserving choice… composer John Williams!

    Wow. Surprise pick. Awesome. I expect George Lucas or Steven Spielberg will present the award to him.

    This is an inspiring, brilliant choice…Definitely caught
    me by surprise because the AFI thought outside the box
    and didnt give it to an actor or director..and JOHN WILLIAMS
    is certainly deserving of this highest honor for a career in film!!!
