Acad governors laud Greenfield

Medal awarded to Theater Standards Committee chair

The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences will award Douglas Greenfield its John A. Bonner Medal of Commendation.

Named in honor of the late director of special projects at Warner Hollywood Studios, the Bonner Medal is awarded for upholding the high standards of the Acad through exceptional service and dedication.

The medal will be presented Feb. 14 at the 2003 Scientific & Technical Awards dinner in Pasadena.

Greenfield is being honored for his long-standing support of the Academy and the motion picture industry. Since the late 1970s, he has worked to improve the quality of film sound technology.

An active member of the Academy for 11 years, he has served as a sound branch governor for six years and as a chair of the Theater Standards Committee. Greenfield also was on the committee that oversaw the design of the Academy’s new theater at the Pickford Center.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2003 will be presented Feb. 29 at the Kodak Theater. Academy Award-winning thesps Nicole Kidman and Catherine Zeta-Jones have been set as presenters at the 76th annual kudoscast.
