He seems to have a head start with his being honored as Hollywood Director of the Year, as we see here in this take curtesy of The Envelope:
-The 12th Annual Hollywood Awards will honor Clint Eastwood with the Hollywood Director of the Year Award.
The Oscar-winning director and producer will receive the award at the festival’s Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony in Beverly Hills on Oct. 27.
“Just when you think Clint Eastwood is about to take a breath, he shoots two films in a year and starts prepping a third, and barely thinks any of that is worth mentioning. He brings dignity, grace, humility, humor, quiet confidence and a sense of ease to a profession that is in sore need of all of those virtues,” said screenwriter, director and Awards co-chair Paul Haggis in a statement.
-Fast track to Oscar?
