Precious lands Kramer accolade

The film’s producers, including Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey, will be honoured with the award at the 21st Annual PGA Awards ceremony on 24 January (10) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

The Stanley Kramer Award was established in 2002 to honour “a motion picture, TV series, studio, network, producer, executive or other individual entity whose work illuminates provocative social issues in an accessible and elevating fashion”.

A statement from PGA Awards co-chairmen David Friendly and Laurence Mark reads, “Precious is truly a film that… tells us quite eloquently that it isn’t what happens to us that defines who we are, but rather what we choose to become.”
