Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor will be honored with the 2009 Ray-Ban Visionary Award, presented by Ray-Ban and The Creative Coalition on January 18th, 2009 in Park City, Utah, at 7pm at the ASCAP Music Cafe. McGregor was chosen to receive the prestigious award, which is in its 7th year, because of his unprecedented accomplishments as an actor, writer, singer, director, and producer.

A talented, critically acclaimed actor, McGregor has successfully distinguished himself as one of Hollywood's finest talents. Debuting in feature films with Bill Forsyth's 1993 project, Being Human, he quickly gained widespread praise and an Empire Award for his performance in the thriller Shallow Grave, which marked his first collaboration with director Danny Boyle. McGregor then played his breakout role as a heroin addict in Boyle's 1996 film version of Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting. Since then, he has taken on challenging and dynamic roles in blockbuster films, such as Star Wars, Moulin Rouge!, Cassandra's Dream.

McGregor has had an immense impact in Hollywood. His scope of work surpasses acting as he co-created, wrote and produced the documentary television series' Long Way Round and Long Way Down, which tracked a 19,000-mile motorcycle journey he and friend Charley Boorman took from London to New York. McGregor has also lent his singing talents to a number of movie soundtracks including, Cassandra's Dream, Miss Potter, Down with Love, Emma, Velvet Goldmine and Moulin Rouge!.

The 7th annual Ray-Ban Visionary Award, in partnership with The Creative Coalition, is proud to honor the work and dedication of an individual who possesses extraordinary talent, passion, creativity, vision, imagination and originality. Previous award winners include Quentin Tarantino, Aaron Eckhart, Matt Dillon, Kevin Bacon, President of HBO Films Colin Callender and EVP/COO New Line Productions and President of Fine Line Features Mark Ordesky. Always committed to the growth of music and the arts, Ray-Ban will once again provide their support by being an official sponsor of The 2009 Sundance Film Festival.

Beginning in 1937 with the early Aviator style, the introduction of other classics such as the Wayfarer in 1952 and continuing today, Ray-Ban is a brand that embodies America and adventure, great cities and wide-open spaces, heroism, individuality and authenticity.
