Yes, the PGA announced that the Beard himself will be the one to be honored this year with the prestigious award. I think it’s a fine selection, and perhaps a timely one as well, considering that he’s got 2 films in contention this year (War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin for those just joining us). Here’s the Press Release citing Spielberg as this year’s recipient:
The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today that producer, director, writer and Principal Partner of DreamWorks Studios Steven Spielberg will receive the 2012 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures. The award will be presented to Spielberg at the 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards ceremony on Saturday, January 21st at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
