Disney's Anne Sweeney will get the royal treatment when H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco presents the Disney Media Networks co-chair and Disney/ABC Television Group president with the Honorary Golden Nymph Prize at the 2012 Monte Carlo TV Festival.
“Anne Sweeney is one of the most talented, experienced and successful entertainment executives in the world today. She and her team have an extraordinary portfolio of achievements and it is with great pleasure that we bestow upon her the 2012 Honorary Golden Nymph Prize, which serves as international recognition for their contribution to the entertainment industry," His Serene Highness said of the media mogul.
