The Location Managers Guild International /LMGI announced the winners of its 7th Annual LMGI Awards tonight hosted by Isaiah Mustafa, honoring outstanding creative contributions of location professionals in film, television and commercials from around the globe, and recognizing outstanding service by film commissions for their support “above and beyond” during the production process. Celebrating the theme “2020 Vision: We See It First,” this year’s LMGI Awards broke with tradition in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the ceremony was presented on a digital platform and streamed to a worldwide and more inclusive audience on www.youtube.com/LMGI.

"At a time when the industry is shifting under our collective feet, the LMGI Awards were a bright spot in a sea of pandemic angst, messaging solidarity, inclusion and hope. International Location Professionals serve the industry with tireless creativity and ingenuity. We are so proud of our Award recipients and nominees–they are all winners," said Awards Co-chair and former LMGI President Lori Balton.

The Motion Picture winners are ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD (Columbia Pictures) and THE LAST BLACK MAN IN SAN FRANCISCO (Amazon Prime Video). The Television Series winners are PERRY MASON (HBO), KILLING EVE (BBC America), and a tie between LITTLE AMERICA (Apple TV+) and ZEROZEROZERO (Amazon Prime Video) in a newly created category of Outstanding Locations in a Limited Anthology. MASK OF ZODIAK won for Outstanding Commercial and TOSCANA FILM COMMISSION won for Outstanding Film Commission. The LMGI Awards spotlight international features, television and commercials in which the creative use of filming locations set the tone, enrich the character and enhance the narrative.

Acclaimed Oscar®-winning director Spike Lee (Da 5 Bloods, BlacKkKlansman, Do the Right Thing, Malcolm X), whose films have reflected significant cultural and historical content with the highest quality, received the acclaimed LMGI Trailblazer Award honoring the groundbreaking spectrum of Lee’s extraordinary award-winning work over the past three decades, presented by Location Manager Tim Stacker (I Am Legend, BlacKkKlansman). Producer, director and Oscar-winning writer Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Mission: Impossible – Fallout, The Mummy) was bestowed with this year’s Eva Monley Award, which recognizes and honors industry members who support the vision of location professionals, presented by actor, writer and director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver, Star Wars- The Last Jedi). Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds) presented Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor Gary Sinise with the esteemed Humanitarian Award, honoring him for establishing the Gary Sinise Foundation with the mission to serve and honor America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, Gold Star families and those in need. Veteran Location Manager Veronique Vowell (Cold Case, Scandal, Little Fires Everywhere, Ray Donovan, The Replacements, Angels in the Outfield, and The Distinguished Gentleman) received this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by Art Director Corey Kaplan and Production Designer Jess Kender.

Additional presenters included Noah Wyle (ER, The Red Line), Tim Williams (Travago, Geico Gekko, Tony the Tiger, Old Spice), Damaris Lewis (Pose, BlacKkKlansman, Fatale), Golden Calf winner Sylvia Hoeks (See, The Girl in the Spider's Web), Jim Cashman (“Jamie” from Progressive), Graham McTavish (Rocky, Rambo, Hobbit Trilogy) and Blair Underwood (Rules for Engagement, Deep Impact, Gattaca).
