Publicists of the International Cinematographers Guild have named Bob and Harvey Weinstein as Motion Picture Showmen of the Year.

The brothers will be presented with their award at the 52nd Publicists Awards Luncheon on Feb. 20 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The organization noted that The Weinstein Company’s “The Imitation Game” has received 10 Academy Award nominations this year along with a Best Song nom for “Begin Again” and Best Documentary (“Citizenfour”) through Weinstein subsidiary Radius-TWC.

They have previously received five Academy Awards for Best Picture: “The English Patient” (1996), “Shakespeare in Love” (1998), “Chicago” (2002), “The King’s Speech” (2010) and “The Artist” (2011).

“The Weinsteins are the very epitome of showmanship,” said Steven Poster, president. “They have impeccable taste and are universally regarded as the industry leaders in awards campaigns.””

Recent recipients of the Motion Picture Showmanship Award include last year’’s honorees Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger as well as Kevin Feige, David Heyman, John Lasseter, James Cameron, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, and Judd Apatow.
