    Star Wars creator George Lucas and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy received the 2022 Milestone Award during last night's Producers Guild of America (PGA) Awards. The prestigious award is given annually to honor a person or teams' contributions to the industry. Lucas and Kennedy are being recognized together as a credit to their extensive body of work individually, and collaboratively through Lucasfilm.



    Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg has worked with Lucas and Kennedy for decades, crafting classics like the Indiana Jones franchise, Jurassic Park, and more. Spielberg took the stage to introduce the pair saying:



    Spielberg, the 1999 Milestone Award recipient, shares honors with Kennedy for their work on E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, a film which a year later was put into the PGA Hall of Fame. In 2008, Kennedy also received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the guild. Kennedy has seven other Outstanding Producer nominations from the PGA, including one for The Mandalorian season two and a win for Spielberg's The Adventures of Tin Tin.

    During her acceptance speech, Kennedy recalled the special time in history in which her and George Lucas have worked together, and how the film industry has evolved:



    George Lucas' accolades from the PGA aren't as extensive but in 2003, Lucas received the 2003 Vanguard Award, recognizing his contributions to new media. His speech paid homage to the vital role a producer plays and how nothing could be made without them.



    Spielberg's West Side Story was up for the biggest award of the night, losing out to CODA for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. For a full recap, you can visit here.
