John Travolta Channeled ‘Saturday Night Fever’ For Lifetime Achievement Award
John Travolta received a Lifetime Achievement Award in Brooklyn this week, and the 64-year-old legend wore a white SNF suit and a black button down in true Saturday Night Fever fashion.
The 1977 film made pizza spot, Lenny’s Pizza, where the event was held, famous as Travolta’s Tony got two slices from the spot in a famous scene where he walked the street eating the slices, double decker-style.
The pizza spot named a slice in Travolta’s honor for the occasion. “Brooklyn has been in my DNA since Welcome Back, Kotter. I love you all so very much,” Travolta told the cheering crowd. “Thank you for giving me such a foundation for my career.”
Oh yes, that’s #JohnTravolta with the famous white jacket from “Saturday Night Fever.” He was honored Tuesday at Lenny’s Pizza in #Brooklyn, which was featured in the film. The ceremony, which State Sen. Marty Golden organized, honored the actor at the spot on 86th St. where Tony Manero bought pizza from Lenny’s. The pizzeria also plans to name a slice after Travolta.
