Publicists to fete 'Benjamin Button' producers

Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall set for ICG nod

Producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will be honored with the ICG Publicists' Motion Picture Showmanship Award on Feb. 18 at the Beverly Hilton.

"Kennedy and Marshall's record of achievement has made them one of the most successful producing teams in the film industry today," awards committee chairman Henri Bollinger said.

The producing duo's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is being distributed domestically by Paramount and internationally by Warner Bros. Their collaborations include work on "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial," "Jurassic Park," "The Sixth Sense," "Seabiscuit" and the "Bourne" trilogy.

Judd Apatow received the Showmanship Award last year.
