Gianopulos will be awarded along with previously announced honoree J.K. Simmons, who starred in Christopher Papakaliatis‘ critically acclaimed hit “Worlds Apart”, during the Orpheus Awards ceremony.
The Orpheus Awards are always a high-profile event in the Greek community of Hollywood. This year, Mena Suvari will be taking over hosting duties for the ceremony.
In addition to the awards for Gianopulos and Simmons, Orpheus Awards will be given to the best of the festival’s 50 films in the categories of short film, documentary, feature film, and performance, as well as one audience award to be voted on by festival attendees.
