Lifetime achievement awards usually go to those who are, well, fairly far along in a lengthy lifetime of achievements. Not that he hasn’t done a lot in his career, but should we be worried about Hugh Jackman’s health? The star of the Les Miserables movie—coming this month, so bulk-order your Kleenex now—joins the ranks of past awardees Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, and Sidney Poitier as this year’s honoree at the Museum of the Moving Image Salute. The party’s at Cipriani, where stars like Rachel Weisz, Anne Hathaway and Alec Baldwin will present a tribute to the Aussie stud. The star of stage and screen got a similar toast at the Tonys this year—by now, he’s perfected his graciously self-deprecating speech.
Museum of the Moving Image Salute to Hugh Jackman, Cipriani Wall Street, 55 Wall Street, call 212-245-6570 for tickets and information.
