“Get Out” Selected For Producers Guild’s Stanley Kramer Award

LOS ANGELES (FNN NEWS) – Jordan Peele’s horror-comedy “Get Out” will receive the Producers Guild of America’s 2018 Stanley Kramer Award.

The award will be presented on January 20 at the 29th Annual Producers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The Stanley Kramer Award was established in 2002 to honor a production, producer, or other individuals whose contribution illuminates and raises public awareness of important social issues.

The guild will present the award to Get Out producers Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, Edward H. Hamm, Jr. and Peele, who also wrote and made his directorial debut on the pic, which bowed in February via Universal and grossed $254.3 million at the global box office.

Producers Guild Awards Chairs Donald De Line and Amy Pascal said, “The electrifying response to ‘Get Out’ demonstrates that the power of motion pictures to crystallize and reflect our collective social anxieties remains stronger than ever. It’s hard to imagine two more different sensibilities approaching the problem of race in America than Stanley Kramer and Jordan Peele, but despite the different paths their stories take, their power springs from the same outrage, fearlessness, and passion.”

Other 2018 Producers Guild Awards Honorees

      

The PGA Awards this year will also honor Ava DuVernay with the Visionary Award, Charles Roven with the David O. Selznick Award, Donna Langley with the Milestone Award, and Ryan Murphy with the Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television.
