Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning writer/director Oliver Stone ("Platoon," "Wall Street") was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 14th annual Savannah Film Festival on Thursday, Nov. 3.

Hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design, Stone dedicated his award to native Savannahian and well-known publicist Bobby Zarem, whom he has known for more than 30 years. "The memory of my achievement lies in Savannah, a city Bobby loves so much," said the award-winning director. Stone ended with, "I got your back, Bobby."

 

Stone has won Oscars for directing "Born on the Fourth of July," which was screened earlier in the day and featured a question-and-answer session with the critically acclaimed director.He has also received Academy Awards for "Platoon," and for his adaptation of the screenplay "Midnight Express."He was nominated for best director for his work on "JFK" and for co-writing "Nixon." He's also received three Golden Globes for directing "Platoon,""Born on the Fourth of July" and "JFK" and one for writing "Midnight Express."

 

The evening continued with a special gala screening of Roman Polanski's "Carnage," winner of the Little Golden Lion Prize at the Venice Film Festival. The film tells the story of two sets of parents who decide to have a cordial meeting after their sons are involved in a schoolyard brawl.

 

The festival will also honor actor Aaron Eckhart ("The Dark Knight," "Erin Brockovich"); actor James Marsden ("27 Dresses," "X-Men"); and directors/writers Mark and Jay Duplass ("Cyrus," "The Puffy Chair") later in the week.
