Academy Taps Phil Robinson For Governors Awards

Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare also hired to help produce the annual non-televised ceremony, which takes place in November.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Monday it has tapped Phil Robinson to produce the 2011 edition of the Governors Awards.

Robinson is an Oscar winner himself (in addition to heading up the Academy’s International Outreach initiatives) and he will be joined by Charlie Haykel and Juliane Hare for the production of the non-televised ceremony, which is set for November 12th.

"I am thrilled that Phil has agreed to produce our 3rd Governors Awards," said Academy president Tom Sherak in a release announced the hire.

"He is not only a fellow board member, he is also an officer of the Academy, and a dear friend.  His love of his craft, film and the Academy makes him the ideal person to produce this special event,” Sherak added.

The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award are just a few of the honors to be handed out at the 3rd annual Governor's Awards event, which takes place inside the Grand Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland complex..

The 2011 honorees will be chosen at a meeting of the Academy's Board in late August.

Haykel and Hare executive produced Oscars Red Carpet Live, the 90-minute red carpet arrivals show that preceded the 83rd Academy Awards telecast earlier this year, and will likely prove equally as influential in making sure the event runs smoothly this year.
