SBIFF Names Riviera, Virtuoso Honorees

Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Rosamund Pike to Receive Awards in 2015


The 2015 Santa Barbara International Film Festival doesn’t kick off until January 27, but the star-studded honorees are already being rolled out. Thus far the festival has announced that Steve Carell, Michael Keaton, and the Cousteau Family will all be honored as part of the 30th installment of the fest, and this week nine more names were added to the marquee.

Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette will share the festival’s American Riviera Award for their work in Richard Linklater’s coming-of-age tale Boyhood. Both the actor and actress will appear in Santa Barbara on Thursday, February 5 at the Arlington Theatre.

On Sunday, February 1, the festival will also honor seven new Virtuosos Award winners, including Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood), Logan Lerman (Fury), David Oyelowo (Selma), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child).
