Producers Guild splits 2005 Stanley Kramer Award

UPI News Service, 12/09/2004 

The Producers Guild of America will honor both "Hotel Rwanda" and "Innocent Voices" with the 2005 Stanley Kramer Award, The Hollywood Reporter said Thursday.

The award is presented in recognition of movies that highlight provocative social issues. This is the first time the PGA has split the award, but PGA Awards co-chairs Stacey Sher and Lauren Shuler Donner said they felt strongly both films were equally deserving.

"These movies are inspiring stories of people, families and nations torn apart by political fighting and speak to the human dignity inherent in all of us," the judges said.

"Hotel Rwanda" stars Don Cheadle as a hotel manager who gave shelter to more than 1,000 Tutsi refugees from the Hutu militia in Rwanda. "Innocent Voices" is the story of a young boy who must decide between enlisting in the army or throwing in with guerillas in El Salvador during the mid-1980s.

The award will be presented Jan. 22 at the PGA Awards in Los Angeles.
