Kudos to Herskovitz, Zwick

'Thirtysomething' creators get ADL nods

A mature industry crowd turned out Tuesday night to pay tribute to the exec producing team of Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick, best known as the co-creators of ABC’s late, great “Thirtysomething.” The pair received the Anti-Defamation League’s entertainment industry award during the org’s annual fund-raising gala at the Century Plaza Hotel.

“It’s exciting, but also a little bit odd to be honored like this – I always thought you had to be older, or more venerable,” Zwick quipped.

“Ed and I still tend to think of ourselves as ‘the Boys,’ and we sometimes forget that we’ve been partners for 25 years now and have this substantial body of work behind us,” Herskovitz added.

The gala honored four student filmmakers, who received Dore Shary Awards from presenter Lynda Obst (filling in for Robert Wise) for their civil rights-themed work.

Walt Disney prexy and CEO Bob Iger and CAA topper Richard Lovett co-chaired the dinner and Bob Saget emceed.

Also on hand were Sela Ward, Billy Campbell, Arthur Hiller, Stu Bloomberg and Dick Wolf.
