“Game of Thrones” and “Sense8” win for TV series at Location Managers Guild ceremony

The Revenant” just keeps on winning.

The Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer, which counts three Oscars among its many trophies, also took the top prize for outstanding locations in a period film at the 3rd annual Location Managers Guild International Awards, which honor the contributions of location pros and film commissions.

The pic, helmed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, became famous – some would say notorious – for its long, difficult shoot in frigid locations in Canada and Patagonia.

Sicario,” directed by Denis Villeneuve and shot along the embattled border between the U.S. and Mexico, won for outstanding locations in a contemporary film.

In television, season 5 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” was honored for outstanding locations in a period TV series and Netflix’s “Sense8” took the trophy for outstanding locations in a contemporary series.

The LGMI Awards ceremony took place at the Alex Theatre in Glendale before an audience of 500, including LMGI members, industry execs and press. Location manager David Doumeng served as host.

Also at the ceremony, actor Tony Revolori (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”) presented director Wes Anderson with the Eva Monley Award. Jeff Goldblum accepted the award on Anderson’s behalf.

Actress Amy Brenneman (“The Leftovers”) and director/executive producer Brad Silberling (“Jane the Virgin”) were honored with LMGI’s Humanitarian Award for their work with numerous charities and their commitment to social responsibility.

Director Michael Mann presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to supervising location manager Janice Polley (“Insurgent”)

Teamsters Local 399 head Steve Dayan (“City of Angels”) was presented with the Trailblazer Award by California Film Commission executive director Amy Lemisch and location manager Ilt Jones (“Transformers”).
