AceShowbiz - Quentin Tarantino was one of the honorees at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) gala held on Saturday, November 1. The fourth annual event brought together the people in art, film, music, fashion and philanthropy to raise funds for the museum's curatorial activities.

Besides the "Inglourious Basterds" director, conceptual artist Barbara Kruger was honored with a video tribute and a standing ovation. According to LA Times, LACMA director Michael Govan selected both of them with the intention of bringing "edgier" selections.

Kruger said in an interview that she was "absolutely thrilled" to be honored by "such an important place where culture is made." She later said in her acceptance speech that it was "just so totally awesome" to share the honor with Tarantino. Meanwhile, Tarantino who received an introduction from actor Tim Roth said in his speech, "I love to talk, and I love to talk about movies. I don't like to talk about my movies."

Attended by such celebrities as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Leonardo DiCaprio, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Lopez, the event raised nearly $4 million that night. The money will be used to bring art and film to the public. "The whole idea is to bring the creative communities together," Govan said.
