Praisers Cook up kudos

ICG arm to honor Mouse topper

Union publicists have tapped Walt Disney Studios chairman Richard Cook to receive the org’s Motion Picture Showmanship Award.

Kudos will be presented at the Intl. Cinematographers Guild’s 41st annual Publicists Awards luncheon Feb. 27 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Previous winners include Lew Wasserman, Clint Eastwood, Bob Daly, Terry Semel, Sherry Lansing, Alfred Hitchcock and Jack Warner.

Publicists are repped through Local 600 of the ICG as a result of its merger with Publicists Guild Local 818.

Org noted Buena Vista Pictures Distribution and Buena Vista Intl. set a record in 2003 for global box office, with combined domestic and international gross topping $3 billion; Buena Vista also has led the domestic race for seven of the last nine years.

Org also will offer a special tribute to Walt Disney Studios in recognition of eight decades as a leader in the field of family entertainment.

“Dick’s background in distribution and marketing has led the company to its current box office successes,” said awards committee chairman Henri Bollinger.
