Ben Platt & Zoe Saldana Team Up at National Arts Awards

Ben Platt poses for a photo with Zoe Saldana while attending the 2019 National Arts Awards on Monday night (October 21) at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City.

The 26-year-old The Politician actor was honored with the Ted Arison Young Artists Award during the event.

“It’s a real privilege that I get to do what I love. I grew up overly blessed — my parents instilled in me many beautiful things, not the least of which is the arts. And I had unbelievable access to arts education, which allowed me to flex my talent and find my tribe and my belonging. This is holy work being done: ensuring that arts education is for everyone, not just the people lucky enough to be born into it like I was,” Ben said during his speech.

Zoe, who was joined by husband Marco Perego, was on hand to present the Carolyn Clark Powers Lifetime Achievement Award to artist Luchita Hurtado.

Also in attendance at the event were singer Ben Folds and Tony winner Patina Miller.

FYI: Zoe Saldana is wearing Givenchy with Jared Lehr earrings. Ben Platt is wearing Prada.
