John Travolta to receive Cinema Icon Award at Cannes Film Festival

For John Travolta, “icon” will be the word at the Cannes Film Festival.

Trade publication Variety said Friday that Travolta will receive its inaugural Cinema Icon Award at this month’s festival in France.

Steven Gaydos, Variety vice president and executive editor, said in a statement that Travolta’s long career, popularity and honors “splendidly qualify” him for the recognition.

Travolta received an Oscar nomination for his star-making turn in 1977’s “Saturday Night Fever” and another for 1994’s “Pulp Fiction.”

“Grease,” released in 1978 and starring Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, is among the biggest movie musical hits ever.
