tom hanks kennedy center honors

Tom Hanks was amongst those being honoured at Sunday's 'Kennedy Center Honors.'  The honours was hosted by Stephen Colbert and will be broadcast Dec 30th on CBS in the US.

Others honoured were Sting, Lily Tomlin, singer Al Green and ballerina Patricia McBride.  Steven Spielberg had a few words to say on Tom Hanks who has worked with the actor in many of his films including Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal and Band of Brothers.
"America's favorite son" has opened a window on the nation with movies that include Philadelphia, A League of Their Own, Forrest Gump, Apollo 13 andSaving Private Ryan.
"Tom loves his country," Spielberg said.
President Barack Obama saluted the honorees Sunday at the White House before the show. During the East Room reception, Obama invoked John F. Kennedy's appreciation for the role of the arts in the nation, which helped inspire the Kennedy Center's creation as a memorial to the 35th president.
"It's clear that the group on stage with me tonight understands what President Kennedy understood: that our art is a reflection of us not just as people, but as a nation. It binds us together," Obama said. "Songs and dance and film express our triumphs and our faults, our strengths, our tenderness in ways that sometimes words simply cannot do."
