18 January 2023 01:58

The Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey was awarded the prize in recognition of his “personal aesthetic and authorial contribution to the development of the art of drama.”, in Turin, Italy, Monday (17/1/2023).

Kevin Spacey has praised an Italian museum for having “the guts” to recognize him with a prestigious award, despite controversy over the sex crime allegations he’s faced.

It came just days after the actor appeared via videolink at Southwark Crown Court in London, pleading not guilty to several charges of sexual misconduct against one man about 20 years ago.

The charges were joined to an earlier five-count indictment related to alleged sex offenses against three men between 2005 and 2013, for which Spacey previously professed his innocence.
