Lucys to fete Carsey, Diller

MacRae to receive award for service to WIF

Indie TV producer Marcy Carsey, actress-comedienne Phyllis Diller and the cast and crew of HBO’s “If These Walls Could Talk” and “If These Walls Could Talk 2,” among others, will be honored at the seventh annual Lucy Awards.

Honoring innovation in TV, the Women in Film awards, which are presented at a BevHilton-based luncheon the Friday preceding the Emmys, will also posthumously honor actress Meredith MacRae. She will receive the Tichi Wilkerson Kassel Founders Award, named after WIF’s president emeritus and given for a lifetime of distinguished service to WIF. MacRae, who recently died from cancer, was a devoted member of WIF and former chairman of the Women in Film Foundation.

Chaired by co-founders Loreen Arbus and Bonny Dore, the Lucy Awards were founded in 1994 by Joanna Kerns. They are given annually to recognize women and men who exemplify the extraordinary accomplishments Lucille Ball embodied, as the awards are named for her. Past recipients include Carol Burnett, Barbara Walters, Garry Marshall, Norman Lear and the cast of “Sex and the City.”
