Tom Hanks to Be Honored at Hollywood Film Awards for ‘Sully’
Tom Hanks will be honored with the Hollywood Actor Award at next month’s Hollywood Film Awards for his performance as Capt. Chesley Sullenberger in the Clint Eastwood biopic “Sully,” Dick Clark Productions announced on Tuesday.
Hanks, who along with Spencer Tracy is one of only two actors to win back-to-back Best Actor Oscars, received praise from critics for his portrayal of the former Air Force and U.S. Airways pilot who made headlines when he made a successful emergency landing into the Hudson River in 2009 that saved the lives of all 155 passengers and crew aboard.
“Tom Hanks delivered another amazing performance in a career filled with amazing performances. We are thrilled to honor him,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of Dick Clark Productions, in a statement.
