“Good Night, and Good Luck” to receive Stanley Kramer Award

The film "Good Night, and Good Luck" is being recognized by the Producers Guild of America. "Good Night, and Good Luck" will receive the 2006 Stanley Kramer Award, which honors movies that shed light on social issues, the guild announced Monday.

The film's producer and co-writer, Grant Heslov, will accept the prize at the 17th annual PGA Awards, held Jan. 22 at the Universal Hilton.

"Good Night, and Good Luck" chronicles the real-life conflict between TV news anchorman Edward R. Murrow and Sen. Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s. Murrow and his CBS colleagues used the news as a forum to reveal the senator's scaremongering tactics as he attempted to cleanse the nation of communists.

Previous recipients of the Stanley Kramer Award include "Hotel Rwanda," "Innocent Voices," "In America," "Antoine Fisher" and "I Am Sam", AP reports.
