Director Reginald Hudlin To Produce 2014 Academy Governors Awards

This year producer-writer-director Reginald Hudlin will produce the 6th Annual Governors Awards for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The Governors will present the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to Harry Belafonte as well as Honorary Oscars to screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, animator Hayao Miyazaki and actress Maureen O’Hara on Saturday, November 8, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland.

“With Reggie’s experience, unique vision and immense creativity, the evening celebrating those who have given so much to our industry is certain to be a memorable one,” said Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.
“I’m honored to be working with the Academy again,” said Academy member Hudlin, who produced “The Academy Celebrates the Black Movie Soundtrack” concert at the Hollywood Bowl and has executive produced the NAACP Image Awards show for the past two years.  He also serves on the executive board of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.  “The collective impact of this year’s Governors Awards recipients on the evolution of cinema is immeasurable.”
Hudlin was a producer of Best Picture nominee “Django Unchained” and directed “The Great White Hype,” “Boomerang,” and “House Party,” which he also wrote; he also has directed television series such as “Psych,” “Modern Family,” “The Office” and “The Bernie Mac Show.”
