Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will be among the winners at the Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) awards on Friday night alongside actor Charlotte Riley and senior vice president of studio operations Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden Emily Stillman.
The awards, which are in association with Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden will be presented on Saturday night in Hertfordshire, in a ceremony hosted by comedian Patrick Kielty.
As well as honouring the winners and nominees, they will also pay tribute to producer and Hartswood Films’ founder, Beryl Vertue, who died last month.
Other than the PGGB Contribution to the Industry Award, which is voted on by the PGGB board, all the winners were nominated by PGGB’s members and selected by juries of leading industry professionals.
Lyndsay Duthie, PGGB’s CEO, said: “As British content continues to be in demand, we are delighted to be able to celebrate the achievements of our world class production talent at our prestigious awards ceremony. The winners are all trailblazers and we are so proud of each and every one of them.”
Dan Dark, EVP of Warner Bros. Worldwide Studio Operations, added: “It’s been a fantastic year for U.K. production with so many PGGB members making such an outstanding contribution to the industry. I’m especially pleased to see how our industry is recognising the importance of Diversity and Equality and is working to make all areas of our business more inclusive. The awards this year will be a great opportunity to come together in person and to celebrate the incredible achievements of our talented winners.”
