The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, the Brits who co-run Working Title Films and are the producers of the upcoming awards contenders Anna Karenina and Les Miserables, will receive the Hollywood Producers Award at the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards — the first awards show of the 2012 Oscar season — when its gala ceremony is held Oct. 22 at the Beverly Hilton.
The Hollywood Awards, which are determined by Hollywood Film Festival founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu and his advisory team, recognize individuals for both career achievement and work released within the calendar year. Previous recipients of the Hollywood Producers Award include Mel Gibson, Mike Medavoy, Ryan Kavanaugh, Christian Colson and Danny Boyle, and, last year, Letty Aronson.
Of Bevan and Fellner, de Abreu tells THR, “It will be our great pleasure to recognize these two talented and prolific producers at this year’s event.”
