Jim Gianopulos to Receive Producers Guild’s Milestone Award

The Producers Guild of America has selected Jim Gianopulos, Chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox, for its Milestone Award.

The award will be presented to Gianopulos at the 27th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Jan. 23 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

Jim Gianopulos has some of the keenest instincts in our business,” Awards Co-Chairs Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd said. “His leadership at 20th Century Fox hasn’t just moved the studio forward, it’s broadened the craft of cinema. Instantly iconic motion pictures like “Avatar,’ ‘Titanic,’ ‘Sideways,’ ‘Life of Pi’ and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ have redefined the creative possibilities for movies. Those films happened because of Jim’s willingness to take risks on great storytelling.”

“One of the great benefits of this job is to work with incredibly talented filmmakers and executives,” Gianopulos said. “I am truly thrilled to be honored and to celebrate their achievements with this prestigious award.”

The Milestone Award is the PGA’s highest honor. Prior recipients include Clint Eastwood, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ron Meyer, Bob & Harvey Weinstein, Bob Iger and Jon Feltheimer, the 2015 recipient.

Gianopulos has been Fox’s chairman and CEO since 2000.
