AC Board Chair Rick Nicita announced the selection by stating: “Ryan Reynolds is a Renaissance Man 2.0 for our times. He is an actor, a business entrepreneur, a writer, a comedian, a producer and a creative innovator on screen and off. Most important to us, he is a true modern movie star. He has reached the heights of stardom in movies shown on all platforms, in all genres ranging from comedies to dramas to action films or combinations of all three. His popular movies are too numerous to single out but most recently he has achieved unprecedented new levels of audience enthusiasm with DEADPOOL, THE ADAM PROJECT and RED NOTICE. The Canadian government recently designated him a ‘National Treasure’ and the American Cinematheque joins them in celebrating Ryan Reynolds as the 36th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.”
