Spielberg lands Anti-Defamation honour

The Oscar-winning filmmaker, 62, will be presented with America’s Democratic Legacy Award at the league’s annual Los Angeles fundraiser next month (Dec09).

Executives have hailed the Schindler’s List filmmaker as a “true champion of human rights” for his contributions to film and television, in addition to his philanthropic endeavours.

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert and Israeli singer Noa Dori are among the performers set for the event.

The dinner gala is scheduled for 9 December at the Beverly Hilton hotel.
