On Tuesday, Austin Film Society announced the honorees of the 13th annual Texas Film Hall of Fame Awards, to be held at Austin Studios on March 7.
The 2013 inductees into the Hall of Fame are actors Annette O’Toole, Henry Thomas, Stephen Tobolowsky and Robin Wright. Richard Linklater’s film Dazed and Confused, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, will also be inducted, and star Parker Posey will be attending the ceremony to accept the award.
Attending the awards gala fetches a minimum of $500 for an individual ticket, with table reservations going for up to $25,000. The after party, though, is in much closer reach: $30 for an individual ticket and $50 for two. All proceeds from the awards program go toward the Austin Film Society’s filmmaking grants and educational programs designed to find new and emerging film talent across the state.
This year’s honorees’ careers run the gamut of film, TV, music and stage, but as a refresher for placing the faces you’ve probably seen plenty of, heres a rundown of the nominees' more prominent roles.
The Houston native played Martha Kent on The WB/The CW’s long running Superman origin series Smallville, which ran for 10 seasons and aired more than 200 episodes.

He played the fey glee club teacher replaced by Matthew Morrison on Glee. And he had roles in Memento and Groundhog Day. See? Everything.
