Noomi Rapace looked absolutely stunning at yesterday’s 30th Annual American Cinematheque Awards Gala, honoring director Ridley Scott. A roll call of friends and collaborators, including Rapace, Josh Hartnett, Sigourney Weaver, Katherine Waterston, Ben Kingsley and Kristen Wiig took the stage throughout the evening to offer personal anecdotes. Matt Damon presented Scott with the award. As he often does in these circumstances, Scott looked back to his art school upbringing when it was his turn to respond to the outpouring of love and respect. “I was almost dyslexic to anything but that which was visual,” Scott said, recalling how poor a student he was until he took on graphic design as a chosen subject at London’s Royal College of Art. “I had this intuition about film,” he said. “I didn’t know how in the hell I was going to get there, but I figured maybe set design would bring me that much closer.” Over 100 pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery.
