Martin Scorsese to receive David O. Selznick Award from PGA

Dec 11, 2023

Martin Scorsese has has received virtually every award possible for his work, including an Oscar, a Grammy, Emmys, Golden Globes, BAFTA and DGA awards, the AFI Life Achievement Award, the HFPA’s Cecil B. DeMille Award and a Kennedy Center Honor.

On February 25, the Killers Of The Flower Moon director will add to that list a biggie: the 2024 David O. Selznick Achievement Award for his monumental achievements in more than six decades of producing. Scorsese will accept the honour at the 35th Annual Producers Guild Awards.

The award recognises producers for their outstanding body of work in motion pictures. Past recipients include producers such as Steven Spielberg, Barbara Broccoli, Mary Parent, Tom Cruise, Brian Grazer, Frank Marshall, Kathleen Kennedy, and George Lucas.

The honour comes nearly 60 years after Scorsese was first honoured by the PGA.

“In March 1965, I was flown out to Los Angeles by the PGA to receive an award for my student film It’s Not Just You, Murray!” Scorsese remembered. “I was 22 at the time. At the same event, a much older filmmaker was also being honored. His name was Alfred Hitchcock.”

He continued: “58 years later, I’m proud to say that I am now the much older filmmaker. And I’m touched and extremely honored to be receiving an award named after a true legend among producers, David O. Selznick. It makes me feel like I’ve come full circle.”

Scorsese’s work has garnered him three PGA Award nominations and one win for his work on Boardwalk Empire, as well as 14 Academy Award nominations including one Best Director win for The Departed.

In addition to Killers Of The Flower Moon, Scorsese has produced more than 50 motion pictures across a wide swath of genres, including The Irishman, Silence, Shutter Island, Hugo and The Wolf Of Wall Street.

PGA Presidents  Donald De Line and  Stephanie Allain said in a statement,”Marty’s trailblazing career as a producer, marked by decades of bold, breakthrough projects, demands to be celebrated. His mastery and unwavering commitment to the craft are truly unparalleled. We are proud to honor him and his many filmmaking achievements this year at the PGA Awards.”
