The Las Cruces International Film Festival (LCIFF) Creative Team confirms plans to honor Johnny Galecki with the “Outstanding Achievement in Comedy Award” at its 2017 film festival. Galecki will take part in a free Q&A workshop moderated by Don Foster on March 11, 2016.
With a professional acting career that spans more than 25 years, Johnny Galecki is best known for his roles on two hugely popular television series, “Roseanne” and “The Big Bang Theory.” He currently stars on the CBS sitcom, which just started filming its 10th season. As socially awkward physicist Leonard Hofstadter, Galecki has garnered an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination, along with those from the Critic’s Choice Awards, People’s Choice Awards and four consecutive ensemble nominations by the Screen Actors Guild Awards, among others.
In additional to his comedic talent, Galecki started his production company Alcide Bava Productions, which is focused on developing TV series and feature films. He teamed up with writer/director Bobby Miller to executive produce the film “Master Cleanse,” which premiered this year at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival.
