Variety Creative Impact in Acting Award
Patrick Stewart is one of the most acclaimed and beloved performers working today, with numerous and varied roles on both stage and screen, earning Golden Globe, SAG, Emmy, and Tony Award nominations.
Earlier this year, Stewart starred as ‘Professor Charles Xavier’ in the latest X-Men epic LOGAN, reprising a role he originated in the first installment of the franchise in 2000 and earning some of the best reviews of his career. Though he is perhaps best known as ‘Captain Jean-Luc Picard’ on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stewart’s impressive list of film credits spans more than 40 years and countless memorable roles, including recent acclaimed performances in GREEN ROOM, MATCH, and the Starz comedy Blunt Talk.
Stewart is a three-time Olivier Award winner and an Honorary Associate Artist with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 2001, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II conferred on Patrick the order of the Officer of the British Empire (O.B.E.), and in 2010, he received a knighthood for his services to Drama.
