Riordan presents Douglases, Lovett with awards

Away from the usual kudos haunts, Anne and Kirk Douglas, CAA topper Richard Lovett and others received awards from an unusual source: the Getty House Foundation for helping L.A. schools.

The awards were presented Wednesday by Mayor Richard Riordan at a tent pitched on the plush backyard of his official residence; emcee was Bill Rosendahl.

In a brief speech introduced by his wife, Anne, Kirk Douglas ended by joking: “I’m going to leave you now to go off and try to find a job!”

Upon receiving the City of Angels Helen Bernstein Award, Lovett said that the real heroes were the students. Lovett and other CAA agents have served as mentors at Venice High School and Lovett himself has helped the school develop its curriculum.
