EUGENE AND DAN LEVY, THE FATHER AND SON DUO FROM SCHITT’S CREEK MADE THE GRAND OPENING

Eugene Levy recollected some of the most important moments of his life, dreaming and wanting nothing but to be an actor. He then asked his son Dan to continue and share his experiences. But, the speech became most interesting when Dan casually stated that he spoke a little too much and they might just have to skip Tom Hank’s speech to which Hanks twisted his face to make an annoying look, making the entire arena laugh!
ROBERT DE NIRO LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
One of the second highlights of the show was when actor Leonardo DiCaprio got on stage to give away the Life Achievement Award to legendary actor, Robert De Niro. Leonardo shared the screen with De Niro for the first time in the film, This Boy’s Life (1993), an experience he will forever cherish in his heart.
