James Schamus

James Schamus

Poor James Schamus. No sooner did he drop off his tux at the cleaners after ShoWest where he and Ang Lee were presented with the inaugural ShoWest/NATO Freedom of Expression Award, that he has to get it back to be honored (along with Showtime's Matt Blank) at the Museum of the Moving Image's annual black-tie benefit on April 20, 2008. Herbert S. Schlosser, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Museum of the Moving Image, exclaims about this year's honorees: "Both Matt Blank and James Schamus have had enormous success in transforming the face of mainstream American entertainment." The Museum had screened part of Schamus' contribution a few years ago when they held a retrospective of films produced by his former company Good Machine to celebrate its 10-year anniversary. Congratulations...again.
