Event feted folks behind hit shows

Alex Gansa and Howard Gordon received Liberty Hill’s Upton Sinclair Award on April 23.

The men behind Showtime’s “Homeland” admitted on stage at the BevHilton that they were a bit puzzled by receiving an honor from an org that advocates social change.

“We are so humbled and honored and perplexed,” Gordon said. “We feel like that quirky pair in ‘Wayne’s World’ who says ‘we’re not worthy’ over and over again.”

Whether they believed it or not, the duo was received with a standing ovation for their work on not only “Homeland” but also series like “24” and “The X-Files,” where they have been committed to following environmentally friendly habits on set.

The event also honored Alison Morgan, Parke Skelton and producer Charles F. Johnson, who was presented the Creative Vision Award by his “NCIS” thesp Michael Weatherly.

“He’s an extraordinary person and so is his wife, but I know them best as my neighbors,” said Weatherly. “They are good ones except for the occaisonal beer can thrown over the wall.”
