Zellweger, Hawkes, Spoon on the TFHOF Lineup

The Austin Film Society’s Texas Film Hall of Fame ceremony has locked its 2011 honorees. This year, the gala dinner will celebrate the legacy of Oscar nominee Rip Torn (a native of Temple), the advanced career of Oscar winner Renee Zellweger (a native of Katy), the emerging career of Oscar nominee John Hawkes (who spent his early adult life in Austin), the musical influence of Spoon (natives of Austin), and the incredible staying power of the now-completed TV series Friday Night Lights. The event takes place on Thursday, March 10, conveniently timed the night before SXSW begins. The ceremony will be hosted by comic Wyatt Cenac (who spent his teen years in Dallas).
