Oscar-nominated producer Jennifer Fox is set to produce the 2018 Governors Awards, Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences president John Bailey announced Wednesday.
Honorary Awards for the 10th Annual Governors Awards will be presented to publicist Martin Levy, actress Cicely Tyson, composer Lalo Shifrin and producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. The ceremony will take place on Nov. 18 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles.
“This 10th anniversary of the Governors Awards highlights five diverse artists whose contributions to American cinema endure through changing time and fashion. Jennifer is the perfect choice to help us pay tribute to this year’s honorees,” said Bailey.
“The Governors Awards have such a special significance in our industry, because that night is our way of paying tribute to the legends of Hollywood. I’m truly honored to be part of this year’s ceremony,” added Fox.
Fox’s credits include Tony Gilroy’s directorial debut “Michael Clayton,” which earned seven Oscar nominations, as well as “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “The Bourne Legacy,” “Nightcrawler” and “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”
She recently wrapped principal photography on two films: “Velvet Buzzsaw” and “The Torture Report,” both set to open next year.
