2014 PRODUCERS GUILD AWARDS at Beverly Hilton Hotel

In 1990, the Guild held the first-ever Golden Laurel Awards, which were renamed the Producers Guild Awards in 2002. Richard Zanuck and Lili Fini Zanuck took home the award for Best Produced Motion Picture for Driving Miss Daisy, establishing the Guild's awards as a bellwether for the Oscars. This past year, the Producers Guild recognized the producers of Argo, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, and Grant Heslov, with its Zanuck Award for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures, marking the sixth consecutive year the Producers Guild has presaged the Motion Picture Academy's choice. The Producers Guild also honored several special individuals including Bob and Harvey Weinstein (Milestone Award), Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures), J.J. Abrams (Norman Lear Achievement Award in Television), Russell Simmons (Visionary Award), as well as the documentary film Bully (Stanley Kramer Award).
