April's Actor's Spotlight & The 20/20 Awards special sections

A new month brings two new names to the Actor's Spotlight section. You'll find it to the right of the stairwell just before the Second Take section (read about previous sections here and here).

STERLING HAYDEN

Throughout his four decade long career, Hayden worked with several acclaimed directors, including Robert Altman (The Long Goodbye), Francis Ford� Coppola (The Godfather), Bernardo Bertolucci (1900) and Stanley Kubrick (in The Killing and Dr. Strangelove, where he warned us about the Soviet threat to pollute precious bodily fluids).

RIE MIYAZAWA

The model-turned-actress is the star of such acclaimed Japanese films as 47 Ronin, The Twilight Samurai, and 2004's Tony Takitani , adapted from the short story by Haruki Murakami. 20/20 AWARDS No, this isn't a news awards show hosted by Barbara Walters. "The 20/20 Awards annually revisit the Academy Awards, using the advantage of 20 years of hindsight we re-evaluate the choices made two decades earlier."� This year, the local group is revisiting the winners of 1991, aka the year Dances With Wolves beat out Goodfellas for Best Picture. Who will be triumphant in retrospect? We have most of� the nominees in the section (it's facing the used section on the shelves by the front door) so you can watch and make an informed decision. The awards will be presented in a fancy ceremony on Wednesday, April 20th at Central Cinema.
