Golden Icon Award: Hugh Grant


Hugh Grant is currently one of Britain’s most successful actors. The charismatic Londoner has wooed his on-screen sweethearts as faithfully over the past thirty years as the public’s affection has remained to him. Grant’s international breakthrough came with his role as the unhappily married Charles in the comedy FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL (1994), a performance that garnered him both a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award. Grant’s other credits over his long and successful career include the literary adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic SENSE AND SENSIBILITY (1995) and the comedies NOTTING HILL (1999), BRIDGET JONES’S DIARY (2001) and ABOUT A BOY (2002). In Tom Tykwer and the Wachowski’s elaborate literary adaptation CLOUD ATLAS (2012) he embodied several characters. Playing the role of a charming nobleman alongside Meryl Streep, Grant will unveil his most recent film FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS at Zurich Film Festival. Hugh Grant will accept the Golden Icon Award in person at Corso cinema on September 27th.
