Dustin Hoffman was honored at the international Film Festival in San Francisco last Wednesday for his acting «brilliance, independence and integrity». He was given the award by actor Robin Williams. Being ever the perfectionist, Hoffman spoke of the doubt plaguing allactors: «We artists are forever in doubt. If you come backstage and say thumbs up, we believe you. If you come backstage and say thumbs down, we believe you.» Hoffman has won the Best Actor Oscar twice: 1980 for «Kramer vs. Kramer» and 1989 for «Rain Man». He was also nominated for «Wag The Dog», «Tootsie», «Lenny», «Midnight Cowboy» and «The Graduate».
