Julianne Moore to be honored at the Museum's annual Gala Salute

January 20, 2015 at 583 Park Avenue

One of the most accomplished and talented actors working today, Julianne Moore will be honored by Museum of the Moving Image at its 29th annual gala Salute in New York City. With her unforgettable performance in Still Alice, for which she just won the Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress, this is Julianne Moore's year.

The Museum will celebrate her accomplishments at a very special evening that will include tributes by a stellar group of Moore's friends and colleagues, including Ellen Barkin, Steve Buscemi, Billy Crudup, Bart Freundlich, Ethan Hawke, Rebecaa Miller, Chloe Grace Moretz, Sarah Paulson, and others.

Moore joins the ranks of past honorees who have received the Museum's Salute, including Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Robert DeNiro, Goldie Hawn, Dustin Hoffman, Tom Hanks, Hugh Jackman, Steve Martin, Al Pacino, Sidney Poitier, Julia Roberts, Martin Scorsese, Kevin Spacey, Steven Spielberg, and Jimmy Stewart.

Known for the breadth of her work, Julianne Moore has appeared in comedies and dramas ranging from art-house hits to blockbusters for both film and television. She was the talk of this year's Toronto International Film Festival for her widely acclaimed performance as a linguistics professor with early onset Alzheimer’s in the powerful drama Still Alice. And, she won the Best Actress Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for her fearless performance as an actress living in the shadow of her movie-star mother in David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars. In the eagerly anticipated Thanksgiving release The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Moore portrays Alma Coin, President of District 13.

Moore has starred in films by such esteemed directors as Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, Safe, I’m Not There), the Coen Brothers (The Big Lebowski), Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia), Neil Jordan (The End of an Affair), Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are Alright), Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men), Steven Spielberg (The Lost World: Jurassic Park), Ridley Scott (Hannibal), and Robert Altman (Cookie’s Fortune, Short Cuts). She is a five-time Academy Award nominee and the ninth person in Academy history to receive two acting Oscar nominations in the same year for her performances in Far From Heaven (Best Actress nomination) and The Hours (Best Supporting Actress nomination), after receiving many critic’s awards and SAG and Golden Globe nominations for both. For her acclaimed performance as Alaska Governor Sarah Palin in the HBO original movie Game Change, Moore received Golden Globe, SAG, and Emmy Awards.

Funds raised from the Salute support the Museum’s programs, exhibitions, and educational activities. The education programs, which include curriculum-based tours, screenings, and workshops, serve 50,000 students per year.

Individual tickets to the event start at $1,500, and tables at $15,000. For more information or to reserve your ticket/table, please contact Emily Kline at Event Associates at 212 245 6570.
