Robert De Niro will receive the 13th Hollywood Film Festival’s (HFF) Hollywood Actor Award at the gala ceremony on October 26 in LA.
“Robert De Niro is an American icon,” HFF founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu said. “Not only is he highly regarded for his body of work as an actor, producer and director, but also for the passion, integrity and dedication he brings to his performances on camera.”
De Niro stars opposite Kate Beckinsale, Drew Barrymore and Sam Rockwell in the drama Everybody’s Fine, a remake of Giuseppe Tornatore’s Italian film Stanno Tutti Bene.
The actor is currently filming Universal’s Little Fockers, the third episode in Universal’s global comedy franchise, and stars in Nu Image’s upcoming thriller Stone alongside Ed Norton.
He won the 1975 best supporting actor Oscar for The Godfather, Part II and collected the lead actor Academy Award six years later for Raging Bull.
