The Academy Award-nominated films “Lady Bird,” “Coco” and “The Boss Baby” will be recognized at a Los Angeles City Council meeting for winning the 7th Annual Made in Hollywood Honors, Councilman Mitch O’Farrell announced Monday.
Producers and others associated with the films will be on hand for the event at Tuesday’s City Council meeting, which will be hosted by O’Farrell.
The awards have honored TV shows and films made in California as a way to encourage local productions. The MIHH is co-sponsored by O’Farrell, SAG- AFTRA, Film L.A., the California Film Commission, Teamsters Local 399, Film Musicians Secondary Markets Fund, the Producers Guild of America, and 1600 VINE.
Since the MIHH was established in 2011, five of the honorees have gone on to win Oscars for Best Picture or Best Animated Feature: “The Artist,” “Argo,” “Frozen,” “Big Hero 6” and “Inside Out.”
In the summer, the Made in Hollywood Honors also recognize Emmy- nominated television productions made in California.
