LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The city of Los Angeles Thursday was set to honor Hollywood for staying close to home.
City Councilmembers Tom LaBonge and Mitch O’Farrell and iconic film and television star Angie Dickinson were scheduled to present the Made In Hollywood Award for the first time to locally-made television shows nominated for the upcoming Emmy Awards.
The awards, which have previously been presented only to feature motion pictures made in the film capital and nominated for the Best Feature Film Oscar, will honor those locally made shows among the 45 productions or series nominated in the nine Emmy production categories, with producers and/or stars of the honorees accepting the awards.
ABC’s “Modern Family” and the AMC drama “Mad Men” are among the nominees set to be recognized.
The first two Made In Hollywood Motion Picture Awards went to “The Artist” and “Argo”, each of which went on to win the Best Picture Oscar in their respective years.
The ceremony will take place at 11 a.m. at the 1600 Vine Heart of Hollywood Terrace, the site of the historic Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant.
