Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Receive ‘Guys of the Decade’ Award
The last time Matt Damon and Ben Affleck received an award together, they were celebrating their Best Original Screenplay win for Good Will Hunting at the 1997 Academy Awards.
Even though they won’t be taking home golden Oscars trophies this time around, the best buds are set to be honored at Spike’s Guys Choice Awards later this year.
According to People, Boston’s favorite bromance will be taking home the inaugural “Guys of the Decade” award at next month’s ceremony. Hopefully Affleck won’t have to sneak Damon into this event, which takes place in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 4.
The latest award is a pretty apropos honor for the movies stars, and not just because of Damon’s penchant for mansplaining.
Despite working on a slew of blockbuster solo projects, the pair has remained close friends and frequently collaborate together.
Currently, Affleck and Damon have an HBO movie about the global water crisis in the works called Thirst. They are also producing an an interactive competition series called The Runner, as well as a new drama for Syfy.
Other stars who will be honored at this year’s Guys Choice Awards include Super Bowl MVP Von Miller, actress Anna Kendrick, and model Gigi Hadid. Actors Adam Devine and Zac Efron will also be there as presenters.
The ceremony will air on Spike on Thursday, June 9 at 9 p.m.
