But first she'll be seen in 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1'
Julianne Moore will be honored by Museum of the Moving Image at its 29th annual Salute on Jan. 20 at 583 Park Ave. in New York, it was announced today by Herbert S. Schlosser and Ivan Lustig, co-chairmen of the Museum’s Board of Trustees.
Moore, a four-time Academy Award nominee, stars as a woman battling Alzheimer’s in Still Alice, which Sony Pictures Classics will give an awards-qualifying run later this year, and plays a fading actress in David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, which Focus World opens Feb. 27.

“With her unforgettable performances in Still Alice and Maps to the Stars, and her upcoming role in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, this is Julianne Moore’s year," Schlosser said in making the announcement. "She is a fearless and versatile performer who has created so many powerful performances in film and television.”
