Academy Tribute to Sophia Loren

The remarkable film career of Academy Award winning Italian actress Sophia Loren will be celebrated with a gala evening of film clips and personal remarks from her friends and colleagues, concluding with an intimate onstage conversation with the legendary star. 

In 1961, Sophia Loren earned the first Academy Award presented to a lead performer in a non-English speaking role, for “Two Women,” directed by her longtime collaborator, Vittorio De Sica.

In 1990, the Academy presented an Honorary Award to Loren in acknowledgment of her status as “one of the genuine treasures of world cinema who, in a career rich with memorable performances, has added permanent luster to our art form.”

Wednesday May 4th at 8pm - Samuel Goldwyn Theater 8949 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90211
