Paramount has been through a bruising leadership shakeup, but Megan Colligan, the studio’s distribution and marketing chief, said at CinemaCon on Tuesday that it was a new day for the studio.

The footage dazzled the crowd and drew sustained applause at the end. Damon and on-screen wife Kristen Wiig volunteer for a ground-breaking social experiment in which they are reduced to the size of dolls.

The mixture of longtime figures and newbies was also reflected in the TV honorees, as NBC (the sole broadcast network repped) was side by side with relative newcomers Netflix and Espn Films, and with TV fare ranging from reliables like “Game of Thrones” to the new “This Is Us” and “Stranger Things.”

AFI announced its 21 honorees last month, with 10 films and 10 TV shows cited as “outstanding creative endeavors” during 2016; there was also one special award, to Espn Films’ “O.J.: Made in America.” The big winners, with three apiece, were Paramount (“Arrival,” “Fences,” and “Silence”), FX (“The Americans,” “Atlanta,” and “The People v.
