Francis Ford Coppola To Receive Lifetime Career Award
Director Francis Ford Coppola is set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at PEN Center USA’s 2015 Literary Awards. The Godfather director will be feted for his career achievements in film and his work as the publisher of creative magazine Zoetrope: All-Story at the ceremony on November 16 in California.
Coppola said, “The highest goal I ever had throughout my life was to become a writer and participate in literature. I’m not entirely sure if the work I have done over the years qualifies as achieving that goal but certainly this PEN award is a step in that direction.” Bosses at the writers’ organization will also recognize Graham Moore, who will be honored with the Screenplay Award for The Imitation Game, and Noah Hawley, who will receive the Teleplay Award for his work on the TV adaptation of Fargo, according to Variety.
