Tom Cruise to Present Jerry Bruckheimer with the Motion Picture Sound Editors’ Filmmaker Award
70th Annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards Slated for Sunday, February 26 in Los Angeles.
The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) has announced that Tom Cruise will be among the presenters at the 70th Annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards. The 3-time Academy Award nominee and star and producer of this year’s $1.4 billion box office hit Top Gun: Maverick, will present fellow producer Jerry Bruckheimer with the MPSE’s annual Filmmaker Award. The 70th Annual MPSE Golden Reel Awards will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2023, at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles.
The cinematic chemistry between Cruise and Bruckheimer began more than three decades ago with the original Top Gun, the highest grossing film of 1986. Top Gun: Maverick broke box office records worldwide, was named the year’s Best Picture by the National Board of Review and is listed among 2022’s Top Ten films by USA Today, the American Film Institute and many others.
“Tom Cruise is the perfect presenter as we honor Jerry Bruckheimer and his incredible contributions to the world of film and television,” said MPSE President Mark A. Lanza. “We are thrilled to host these two screen legends as we celebrate the Golden Reel Awards’ Platinum Anniversary.”
Tom Cruise’s appearance is one of many special features planned for this year’s Golden Reel Awards. For the first time in three years the awards ceremony will be held live and at a new venue, the historic Wilshire Ebell Theatre. Award‐winning actor, comedian, and author Patton Oswalt will host, while other celebrities will appear as presenters alongside legends of the world of sound.
