Black Widow actress Scarlett Johansson has become the 35th winner of the American Cinematheque Award at a gala in her honour.
Sky reports that Johansson, who recently made headlines for her legal dispute with Disney over the release of her latest Marvel film, follows in the footsteps of the likes of Eddie Murphy, Ridley Scott and Julia Roberts.
The award recognises “an extraordinary artist in the entertainment industry who is fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion pictures”.
It’s organised by a charity dedicated to the public preservation of films.
Among those in the room to pay tribute to the actress was Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, who praised Johansson’s “talent” and “vision”, while also speaking of her skills as a producer as well as an actress.
He said: “Scarlett has lent her talent and star power to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade.
