Annette Bening, Donald McKayle receiving CalArts degrees


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Annette Bening earned her most recent Oscar nomination for playing a lesbian mother coming to terms with – among other things – sending her oldest daughter away to college. Now Bening will be going back to school to grab an honorary degree.

Bening and legendary dancer-choreographer Donald McKayle will receive Honorary Degrees from California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) during a ceremony in Valencia, CA on Friday, May 20, at 6 p.m. PT.

McKayle is a Tony-nominated dancer who has collaborated with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and such icons as Tina Turner and Harry Belafonte. He also served as artistic director of dance at CalArts in the mid-1970s.

Bening, meanwhile, recently scored an Oscar nomination for Lisa Cholodenko’s “The Kids Are All Right.” She’ll next be seen in “Hemingway & Fuentes” and “The Third Act,” two films with 2012 release dates.
