Lasseter To Be Honored By Producers Guild of America

The awards are piling up for John Lasseter. He will be awarded the David O. Selznick Achievement Award by the Producers Guild of American this coming January, making him the first animation producer to receive this award.

Lasseter is receiving the David O. Selznick Achievement Award at the guild's awards show Jan. 24. He's the first producer of animated films to receive the award.

Past recipients include Clint Eastwood, Jerry Bruckheimer, Stanley Kramer and Billy Wilder.

The Producers Guild says Lasseter's work with Pixar Animation and parent company Disney has raised the bar for animated and live-action filmmakers alike.
