Guild set to fete contributions to culture

Spike Lee, Don Hewitt and Sony Pictures Classics execs Michael Barker, Marcie Bloom and Tom Bernard will be honored at the Third Annual Directors Guild of America Honors.

The event, set for Nov. 17 at the Waldorf-Astoria in Gotham, is designed to celebrate distinguished contributions to the nation’s culture in support of filmmaking and television.

Barker, Bernard and Bloom are co-presidents of Sony Pictures Classics. The nine-year-old company has released “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” “Howards End,” “Crumb,” “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” “Lone Star,” “Waiting for Guffman” and “The Spanish Prisoner,” among others pics.
