PGA recognizes Bevan, Fellner

Working Title duo score Selznick award

Working Title Films co-chairmen Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will receive the 2013 David O. Selznick Achievement Award for theatrical films from the Producers Guild of America.

The PGA’s highest honor for film producers will be presented to the pair Jan. 26 at its annual awards ceremony.

“Tim and Eric’s profound body of work includes many of the most beloved and critically acclaimed films,” said 2013 PGA Awards chair Michael DeLuca. “Since the mid-1980s, they have produced more than 100 incredibly diverse feature film and documentary projects.

“Both as individuals and as a bonafide producing team, they have made contributions to the art and craft of storytelling, which are the envy of filmmakers the world over.”

Past recipients of the Selznick honor include Stanley Kramer, Saul Zaentz, Clint Eastwood, Billy Wilder, Brian Grazer, Jerry Bruckheimer, Roger Corman, Laura Ziskin, Kathleen Kennedy & Frank Marshall, John Lasseter, Scott Rudin and Steven Spielberg.

The resume for Bevan and Fellner includes this year’s “Anna Karenina” and “Les Miserables” as well as past pics “Sid and Nancy,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Dead Man Walking,” “Fargo,” “Elizabeth,” “Bridget Jones’ Diary,” “Love Actually,” “Pride & Prejudice,” “Frost/Nixon,” “Senna” and “O Brother Where Art Thou?”

The duo have led Working Title since 1992.

“We are delighted and honored to be receiving the David O. Selznick Award,” Bevan and Fellner said in a statement. “When you look at the past recipients, it is very humbling to be in their company and we are very grateful for the recognition.”
