Next Santa Barbara celebrant: Tommy Lee Jones
11.06.07 by REELZ
The Santa Barbara Film Festival has announced that it will give this year's American Riviera Award (for strong influence in American cinema) to Tommy Lee Jones.
Jones has been receiving quite a bit of awards buzz for his performances in both No Country for Old Men and In the Valley of Elah. And whither Santa Barbara goes, Oscar has been known to follow--just ask previous American Riviera winners Forest Whitaker (Best Actor 2006 for The Last King of Scotland) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Best Actor 2005 for Capote).
