PGA lauds ‘Good’ work

Producer Heslov will accept award for Murrow pic

The Producers Guild of America has selected “Good Night, and Good Luck” as the recipient of its Stanley Kramer Award, recognizing work that dramatically illuminates provocative social issues.

Producer Grant Heslov will accept the award on behalf of the production at the 17th annual PGA Awards on Jan. 22 at the Universal Hilton.

“Stanley Kramer was a filmmaker whose films explored important and provocative social issues, and he was not afraid to take on the tough ones,” Heslov said. “He did it with artistry and class. What an honor it is to be associated with the man who brought us ‘Inherit the Wind,’ ‘Judgment at Nuremberg’ and ‘Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.’ ”

PGA Awards co-chairs Bruce Cohen and Stacey Sher said in a statement, “There has never been a more appropriate moment to appreciate the legacy of Edward R. Murrow, and we are thrilled to be recognizing this brilliant and important film.”

Previous recipients of the Kramer Award include “Hotel Rwanda” and “Innocent Voices” (2005), “In America” (2004), “Antwone Fisher” (2003) and “I Am Sam” (2002).
