   President Barack Obama honored 21 individuals and organizations on Thursday for works that he says have helped Americans connect and understand each other a little better through the arts and humanities. The honorees included actress Sally Field and author Stephen King.

   Sally Field received the 2014 National Medal of Arts for expressing dignity, empathy, and fearlessness in award-winning performances that have touched audiences worldwide, as well as for showing those same qualities in her off-screen advocacy for women, LGBT rights, and public health. King also received an arts medal for combining storytelling with analysis of human nature.

    Obama said he loves to celebrate the brilliance of artists, innovators, and thinkers. The National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities were created by Congress in 1965 to provide grants to support artistic excellence and creativity, and to advance the understanding and appreciation of history, literature, philosophy, and language. Both agencies are celebrating their 50th anniversaries this year.

   Sally Field currently co-hosts with Robert Osborne The Essentials on Turner Classic Movies every weekend.
