The 24th annual American Cinematheque Award presentation to Matt Damon on Saturday night was far more Friars Club Roast than earnest tribute to the 39-year-old actor-humanitarian.

Vanessa Hudgens, the star of the Disney "High School Musical" films, is tackling more adult roles in the upcoming "Machete Kills" and "The Frozen Ground.
