HBO lands Monte-Carlo’s Nymph

'Wounded Knee' to open fest

CANNES — HBO will receive a special Gold Nymph Award at the 47th annual Monte-Carlo Television Festival for its outstanding contributions to and worldwide excellence in programming and production of movies, miniseries and series. The award was unveiled by fest CEO David Tomatis Wednesday.

The award will be presented to HBO Films president Colin Callender at the opening ceremony on Sunday, June 10, which also features the international premiere of HBO’s upcoming film “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” in the presence of executive producers Dick Wolf and Tom Thayer, director Yves Simoneau and cast members Adam Beach and August Schellenberg.

“We are honored to present this award to HBO. The company has clearly emerged as one of the world’s leading programmers of quality television,” Tomatis said.

“We are gratified that the festival has chosen to bestow this prestigious honor upon us, and on the behalf of my colleagues at HBO, I am proud to accept this award,” Callender said.

Announcement will come as good news to the Time Warner paybox, which is grappling with the recent firing of its topper Chris Albrecht, after an arrest for battery in Las Vegas. He has not yet been replaced.
