Thesp to receive lifetime achievement award

HOLLYWOOD — Hollywood publicists have tapped Warren Beatty to receive a lifetime achievement award at their 39th annual awards luncheon.

Kudos will be presented March 20 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Beatty was selected for his body of work as an actor and producer.

“We’re also honoring Warren for the outstanding flair for showmanship he has demonstrated in the presentation of his work,” said Henri Bollinger, award committee chairman.

The publicists are repped through Local 600 of the Intl. Cinematographers Guild as a result of that local’s recent merger with Publicists Guild Local 818.
