The Producers Guild has announced that Disney chairman and chief executive officer Bob Iger will receive the 2014 Milestone Award. It will be presented to Iger at
the 25th Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony, to be held on January 19, 2014, at the
Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The Milestone Award is the Guild’s highest honor, recognizing
an individual or team who has made historic contributions to the entertainment
industry. In the past, Clint Eastwood, Jeffrey
Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ron Meyer, Walt Disney, and the
2013 recipients Bob and Harvey Weinstein, have been recipients.
Iger shepherded Disney’s successful acquisition of Pixar in 2006;
Marvel in 2009; and, most recently, Lucasfilm and the ongoing “Star Wars” franchise in 2012.
