The spotlight was on “Pretty Woman” star Julia Roberts (54). The Oscar winner (“Erin Brockovich”) was a recipient of the “Icon Award”. Roberts has played “iconic figures and unforgettable roles” in her long career, as museum boss Jacqueline Stewart had previously acknowledged the actress in a statement.

British director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”) and Scottish actress Tilda Swinton (“Grand Budapest Hotel”) were also honored for their services to the film.

Last year, the Italian film legend Sophia Loren and the Ethiopian director Haile Gerima were celebrated. The 2021 fundraiser gala raised more than $11 million in donations. This time, too, donations should flow into museum programs. dpa
