‘Good Wife’ Producers and ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Win Caucus Honors

Producers Michelle and Robert King of “The Good Wife” and director Alex Graves of “Game of Thrones” (pictured) took top awards as the Caucus for Producers, Writers & Directors presented its annual Caucus Honors awards Thursday night.

The Caucus is “an alliance of TV and new-media content creators that puts special focus on hyphenates such as writer-producers and producer-directors.

Variety co-editor-in-chief Andrew Wallenstein was honored with the Caucus’s Journalism Award. Introducing Wallenstein, co-editor-in-chief Claudia Eller called Wallenstein “the best partner I could ever imagine having” and tongue in cheek, spoke of his reputation for being “a brilliant journalist… but cynical, and arrogant as hell.” Wallenstein, in turn, told of reading Eller’s articles and wondering, “How do I do that?”

“As an arrogant a-hole,” he said of Eller, “it’s nice that someone puts up with me.”

Wallenstein thanked the Caucus for acknowledging journalism in general. “My focus is on writing about how this industry is changing,” said Wallenstein. “It’s something I’m really passionate about. This industry … ran by certain rules for decades, and it’s all getting wiped away by new rules.”

The executive of the year honoree was Steve Mosko, president of Sony Pictures Television. His son Matt presented and accepted the award.

“I personally know what makes my father such a great exec, and that is how he handles himself in the face of adversity,” said Matt Mosko. “So many people in this business always come up to me and say, ‘Your father has done so much for me,’ and ultimately I know that is why he is getting this award. He has the biggest heart in the world, and he always puts others before him.”

Producer-director Lee Miller was recognized with the Chair’s Award, and Scott Carrey received the distinguished service award.

Two students received the Caucus Foundation’s Gold Circle Award. First prize winner Ryan Moody of UCLA was honored for his short “Obituaries.” He received a $6000 Panasonic camera package. Second prize winner Ko-Rely Pi of Columbia U. received a $20,000 HT/Illuminate HD post-production package on the strength of his short “Pitter Patter Goes My Heart.”

The Caucus Foundation also presented the television and new media award to Chapman U.
