Bob Iger

Kudo to be presented Jan. 19

The Producers Guild of America has tapped Walt Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger as the recipient of its 2014 Milestone Award.

The award will be presented to Iger at the 25th annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony Jan. 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

“I’ve had the great privilege of working with some of the world’s best storytellers,” Iger said. “I am constantly inspired by the creativity and innovation at Disney, as thousands of people around the world work together to tell great stories in spectacular new ways. For 90 years, Disney has redefined what’s possible and raised the standard of excellence in entertainment. We continue to strive to live up to that legacy, and it’s very rewarding to see our efforts recognized in such a meaningful way by the Producers Guild of America.”

The Milestone Award has been given to Clint Eastwood, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ron Meyer, Walt Disney, and the 2013 recipients Bob and Harvey Weinstein.
