Directors Guild to Honor Ron Howard, Tyler Perry, Chuck Schumer

The Directors Guild of America will honor director-producer Ron Howard, director-producer Tyler Perry, Teamsters Local 817 President Thomas J. O’Donnell, U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and film editor Thelma Schoonmaker at its 2015 DGA Honors ceremonies on Oct. 15.

The event will be held at the DGA Theater in New York City.

“From an influential DGA and Academy Award-winning master filmmaker like Ron Howard, to a multihyphenate entertainment powerhouse and Atlanta business leader like Tyler Perry, to a renowned legislator and advocate for production incentives and job creation like Senator Chuck Schumer, DGA Honors recognizes both the visionary artists who create media as well as leaders in government and beyond,” said DGA president Paris Barclay.

“Our creative work is enriched by invaluable contributions of such craft masters as Thelma Schoonmaker, a trailblazing light in film editing, and labor leaders like Thomas J. O’Donnell, the president of Teamsters Local 817, who represents the fine professional crews that make up the beating heart of each production.”

Past DGA Honors recipients have included Nora Ephron, Robert Altman, Jonathan Demme, Milos Forman, Curtis Hanson, Spike Lee, Mike Nichols, Arthur Penn, Sydney Pollack, Martin Scorsese, Dick Wolf, Lorne Michaels, David Chase, Sheila Nevins, Robert De Niro, Senator Ted Kennedy, Senator Patrick Leahy, Senator Olympia Snowe, Congressman John Conyers, Jr. and Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
