Matt DamonMatt Damon, 38, has been chosen to receive his first lifetime achievement honor, the American Cinematheque Award. The Cinematheque award is given out annually to artists who are “committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion pictures.” Previous recipients of the award include Samuel L. Jackson, Jodie Foster, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Al Pacino and Denzel Washington.
