Duo cops directing, music awards

Richard Donner will be honored with the fourth annual Hollywood Film Festival’s directing award.

Michael Kamen will also be celebrated at the event with the music-in-film award. Both honors will be presented as part of the Hollywood Film Awards gala ceremony Aug. 7 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Donner has produced many films, most recently this summer’s “X-Men.”

Kamen scored “X-Men”; his past with Donner extends to scoring all of the “Lethal Weapon” films, as well as episodes of the Donner-produced “Tales From the Crypt” TV series.

“Mr. Donner’s filmography is a demonstration of excellence. His outstanding vision, talent and com-mand of his craft have made him one of Hollywood’s most accomplished and highly regarded directors,” said Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive director of the Hollywood Film Festival.

Donner has directed all of the “Lethal Weapon” pics, “Superman” and “The Omen,” as well as “Conspiracy Theory,” “Maverick” and “Ladyhawke.”

He also worked in television, directing episodes for Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone,” “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and “The Fugitive.”
