Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis will produce the 7th Annual Governors Awards for the Academy. The ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2015, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.

Lynn and Curtis are partners at their Mockingbird Pictures, which has produced films including “Last Days in the Desert,” “5 to 7,” “The Face of Love,” “Albert Nobbs” and the upcoming “The Sweet Life.”
For the last two years, Lynn has served as producer of the
Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting Awards Presentation &
Live Read with director Rodrigo Garcia. Before joining Lynn at Mockingbird, Curtis spent 15 years with Steven Spielberg,
producing such films as “Minority Report” and “AI,” as well as
co-producing “Saving Private Ryan.”
As previously announced, the Governors Awards will go to Debbie Reynolds, this year’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipient, and Spike Lee and Gena Rowlands, who will receive Honorary Awards.
