Gale Anne Hurd will receive the Producers Guild of America’s (PGA) 2015 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures.
The award will be presented at the 26th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on January 24 2015 in Los Angeles.
“I am humbled to be mentioned in the same breath as the legendary producer David O. Selznick, and to receive an award in his name is truly an honour in and of itself,” said Hurd. “But even more important to me is the recognition it represents from my esteemed peers and colleagues at the Producers Guild Of America.”
Previous winners of the Selznick award include Stanley Kramer, Saul Zaentz, Billy Wilder, Clint Eastwood, Jerry Bruckheimer, Brian Grazer, Laura Ziskin, Roger Corman, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall, Scott Rudin, Steven Spielberg and last year’s recipients Michael G Wilson & Barbara Broccoli.
Hurd’s credits include The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Armageddon, The Incredible Hulk and The Punisher.
She serves as executive producer on The Walking Dead and is working on the upcoming Syfy series Hunters.
