This year's American Cinematheque honors will go to Matthew McConaughey. At 44, while he is younger than some Hollywood tribute subjects, McConaughey nonetheless makes a strong candidate for one of these galas. 

The Texas-born star just won the Best Actor Oscar for Focus Features' "Dallas Buyers Club," has made a strong career resurgence of late with such indie films as Jeff Nichols' "Mud," Steven Soderbergh's "Magic Mike" (a sequel is in the works), Richard Linklater's "Bernie," and William Friedkin's "Killer Joe," and also has the backing of HBO, which is running an Emmy campaign for "True Detective," as well as Paramount, which released Martin Scorsese's "Wolf of Wall Street" and is pushing Christopher Nolan's upcoming November release "Interstellar." Next up is Gus Van Sant's "Sea of Trees." The studios help to defray the cost of these fundraising events.

McConaughey will accept the award at the annual Cinematheque Ball at the Beverly Hilton on October 21. Stated Rick Nicita, American Cinematheque chairman:

“Matthew McConaughey is the epitome of what a Hollywood star should be — an adventurous, joyous and evergrowing talent combined with matinee-idol looks and an unshakeable sense of who he is and what he stands for."
