Kudo given during January ceremony at Century Plaza

The Producers Guild of America has tapped Laura Ziskin to receive its Visionary Award.

Kudo will be presented at the PGA’s awards ceremonies Jan. 21 at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

Trade org, which reps 4,500 producers, made the announcement Wednesday and cited Ziskin’s work on the Stand Up to Cancer campaign. It noted that Ziskin also received the PGA’s David O. Selznick award in 2005 and will become the first person to receive both that trophy and the Visionary award.

Previous recipients of the Visionary award — which honors “positive and uplifting” work — have included Simon Fuller, Jeff Skoll, Joel Gallen, Mike Nichols and Cary Brokaw.

“Laura Ziskin is not only an exceptionally talented producer but also an avid humanitarian with an inspirational drive to make a difference in the fight against cancer,” said Paula Wagner, chair of the PGA Awards.
