PGA praises AOL chief

Nod to be presented at kudos on Jan. 22

The Producers Guild of America has tapped America Online chairman-CEO Jon Miller to receive its Vanguard Award in recognition of AOL’s Webcast of the Live 8 concert events.

Nod, which recognizes achievement in new media and technology, will be presented at the PGA Awards Jan. 22 at the Universal Hilton Hotel.

The Live 8 concerts took place July 2 in London, Philadelphia, Berlin, Paris and Rome and July 6 in Edinburgh.

“This summer, the work of Jon Miller and AOL in their simultaneous Webcast of the Live 8 concert events literally redefined the possibilities of entertainment distribution,” said PGA Awards co-chairs Bruce Cohen and Stacey Sher in a statement. “Furthermore, that work was every bit as essential as that of the event’s artists and organizers; it was only through the online perspective provided by Jon and AOL that one could sense the truly global reach of Live 8, to hear and see that the world could actually speak with one voice.”

The Producers Guild will announce their nominees for feature films and TV on Jan. 4.
