Steven Spielberg will get Producers Guild Award

HollywoodNews.com: I can’t believe it’s taken this long, but Steven Spielberg is finally getting the Producers Guild Award. It’s an honorary prize named after legendary David O. Selznick.

Spielberg will get the award on January 21st, right in the middle of Oscar season–in fact just days before the Academy Award nominations are announced. He may very well be up for some with his film version of “War Horse.” Past honorees include Stanley Kramer, Saul Zaentz, Clint Eastwood, Billy Wilder, Brian Grazer, Jerry Bruckheimer, Roger Corman, Laura Ziskin, Kathleen Kennedy & Frank Marshall , John Lasseter. Last year, Scott Rudin got the award in the middle of his big season with “The Social Network” and “True Grit.” This year Rudin is bringing “Moneyball”–a great movie which everyone has to see–to the Oscar dance. Congratulations to Spielberg, who’s probably the most famous movie maker in the world. But he’s also done an enormous amount of good with his Shoah project and other philanthropies.
