Steven Spielberg, one of President Barack Obama’s most notable Hollywood supporters, will honor him as part of a USC Shoah Foundation Event.
Spielberg will give Obama with the Ambassador for Humanity Award May 4 in Los Angeles, which also allows the president to attend his latest Democratic fundraiser in the Golden State.
President Obama’s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” said Spielberg in a statement announcing the news. “As a constitutional scholar and as president, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity for all is remarkably evident.
The foundation preserves film and audio clips related to the Holocaust made from survivors of the 20th century atrocity.
Spielberg cut a $1 million check to one of the nastier Obama SuperPACs of the 2012 presidential campaign.
