Ryan Reynolds will be honored with the American Cinematheque Award this year ...

The organization has been selected to receive the 36th Award, with the organization declaring that it has set its annual tribute gala for November 17 at the Beverly Hilton.

The Annual Gala Dinner, which attracts one of the most A-list guests, is a fundraiser for the organization that manages the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Los Feliz 3, and the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Scarlett Johansson, who preceded Spike Lee, Charlize Theron, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Ridley Scott, Reese Witherspoon, and Matthew McConaughey are among the most recent honorees.

"Ryan Reynolds is a Renaissance Man 2.0 for our times," said Rick Nicita, an American Cinematheque board chairman. "He is an actor, a business entrepreneur, a writer, a comedian, a producer, and a creative innovator on screen and off. He has reached the heights of stardom in all films, from comedy to action films or combinations of three.

"His many films are too spooky to identify, but most recently, Deadpool, The Adam Project, and Red Notice have surpassed unprecedented interest among audiences. The Canadian government recently designated him a "National Treasure" and the American Cinematheque has joined them in commemorating Ryan Reynolds as the 36th recipient of the American Cinematheque Award."

Reynolds was nominated for Deadpool for the Golden Globe in 2016. He is also the only actor with three films on Netflix's all-time top 10 list: Red Notice, the recently released The Adam Project, and Six Underground.

He was a prolific marketer for Deadpool, as well as his own businesses Aviation Gin and Mint Mobile, and has worked for Maximum Effort Productions.
