Brad Pitt’s Plan B Honored by Producers Guild with Visionary Award

The Producers Guild of America has selected Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment to receive its 2015 Visionary Award.

Plan B produced “12 Years a Slave,” which won the best picture Oscar this year, along with awards season contender “Selma.”

Pitt and his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will accept the award at the 26th annual Producers Guild Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Jan. 24.

The PGA’s Visionary Award recognizes television, film or new-media producers for their unique or uplifting contributions to our culture through inspiring storytelling or performance.

“Plan B Entertainment is being recognized with the Visionary Award for producing stories that have breathed new life into some of the seminal — and in some cases, most painful — episodes of our shared history,” the PGA said.

Plan B’s credits include  HBO’S “The Normal Heart,” “World War Z,” “Tree of Life” and “The Departed.”

“For over a decade, Plan B Entertainment has inspired creativity and innovation in the entertainment industry,” said Producers Guild Awards co-chairs Todd Black and Ryan Murphy. “With critical and popular successes in both film and TV, Plan B continually breaks new artistic ground and stimulates necessary dialogue about our history and culture. We look forward to being further enthralled and engaged by their work in the years to come, and are delighted to honor them with this year’s Visionary Award.”

Previous honorees include producer and founder of Illumination Entertainment Chris Meledandri, Russell Simmons, producer Laura Ziskin, Participant Media chief Jeff Skoll and Joel Gallen, who produced “America: A Tribute to Heroes.”
