“Sam Jackson is a cultural icon whose dynamic work has resonated across genres, generations and audiences worldwide, while Elaine May’s bold, uncompromising approach to filmmaking, as a writer, director and actor, reverberates as loudly as ever with movie lovers. Liv Ullmann’s bravery and emotional transparency has gifted audiences with deeply affecting screen portrayals, and Danny Glover’s decades-long advocacy for justice and human rights reflects his dedication to recognising our shared humanity on and off the screen,” said Academy president David Rubin.
