Two true Hollywood legends, director Steven Spielberg and composer john williamswill mark their 50th year of collaboration by making a rare joint public appearance at a tribute organized by the American Cinematheque, the hollywood reporter has learned.
Featuring excerpts and conversations about their work and friendship, “Spielberg/Williams — 50 Years of Music and Movies” will take place Thursday, January 12 at 6 pm at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. (American Cinematheque members will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase tickets to the event, but anyone can become an AC member at any time.)
Spielberg and Williams met and began working together in 1972 on sugar espresso (1974), the first of 29 feature films on which they have collaborated. (Spielberg has made only five films that they were not annotated by Williams.) Many of their collaborations are immediately reminiscent of both the visuals and the music in a way that only applies to a select few director/composer teams, perhaps only Alfred Hitchcock Y bernardo herrmann, david lean Y Mauricio JarreY sergio leone Y Ennio Morricone. Spielberg and Williams collaborations include jaws (1975), Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), in search of the lost ark (1981), Eastern Time (1982), Jurassic Park (1993), schindler’s list (1993), Saving Private Ryan (1998), Munich (2005) and lincoln (2012).
This year, the duo reunited to The Fabelmans, which Spielberg has described as the “most personal” film of his career. The film has already been nominated for Golden Globe and Critics Choice Awards for Best Picture and Best Original Score, with major Oscar nominations almost certain to follow.
If the film is nominated for best picture, Spielberg will expand his record of nominations for a producer from 10 to 11 (he’s only won in that category once, for schindler’s list). And if he’s nominated for best original score, Williams will expand his record number of total nominations for a living person from 52 to 53 (he’s won five times); he already holds the all-time record for most decades with at least one nomination (the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s).
Williams, who turns 91 in February, has said his final the soundtrack will be the one he is currently composing for Indiana Jones and the dial of fate, on which Spielberg, 75, is an executive producer. It will hit theaters on June 30, 2023.
