LINCOLN belongs to the ages. Steven Spielberg's landmark motion picture enriches the American canon - freeing the Great Emancipator from his tintype image and exploring the wit and wisdom that made the man. Daniel Day-Lewis is instantly iconic, demonstrating an immersion into character that is as honest as it is immediate. Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and an extraordinary acting ensemble breathe humanity into history, while Tony Kushner's brilliant screenplay illustrates the power of words to dazzle above the most special of effects. Film legends D.W. Griffith and John Ford each depicted their versions of America's sixteenth president, and Spielberg's now stands beside them with this telling for our time - and for all time.

2012 Won

WAR HORSE advances Steven Spielberg's gallant charge into the history of American film. A masterpiece from foal to finish, the film is an epic odyssey of friendship against all odds. Marked by a driving intensity in each scene - from the plowing of a field to the battlefields of World War I - this is grand scale filmmaking in the tradition of John Ford and David Lean, but presented with a brave and bold emotion only imaginable from Spielberg and his talented team. WAR HORSE is proof that miracles can happen.

2011 Won

THE PACIFIC is storytelling on a scale worthy of "The Greatest Generation." Epic in size and intimately personal, this grueling ten-part mini-series from executive producers Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and Gary Goetzman recreates the history and the horror of World War II's Pacific theatre through the eyes of three United States Marines. With America fighting two wars in 2010, THE PACIFIC landed on airwaves with a powerful question, "What are you willing to sacrifice for your country?"

2007 Won
AFI Award
Movie of the Year

LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA is a masterpiece of American film. Clint Eastwood continues to set the standard - telling stories of uncommon sensitivity on a canvas so grand and glorious that his place in America's cultural legacy seems to have no bounds. LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA is a complex examination of duty to one's country - the enemy's country. By presenting the Japanese perspective, the film projects point of view through a prism, reminding us of our common humanity and inspiring us to rise above the past and look forward to a brighter, better future.

2006 Won

MUNICH reminds us how lucky we are to live in the time when Steven Spielberg is making movies. This is another landmark contribution to American film from one of its master storytellers. The movie asks difficult questions about the moral complexities of vengeance - and who, ultimately, stands proud in the name of family and home. Great movies stir great debate, and that Spielberg would embrace such a controversial subject and present it as a prayer for peace is as brave and bold a move as we would expect from one of this country's great artists.
