Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers to Receive DGA’s Diversity Award.
The longtime producing partners will be honored for providing jobs and opportunities to women and minorities, marking only the fifth time the guild has doled out the prize. The Directors Guild of America announced Tuesday that theGrey’s Anatomy and Scandal producers will receive its 2014 Diversity Award. The prize — only the fifth of its kind to be awarded — will honor the Shondaland duo for their commitment to diversity hiring and history of providing jobs and opportunities to women and minorities in DGA-covered categories and the example they set for the rest of the industry.
"It has always been important that the world created in my shows look like the actual world that we live in," Rhimes said. "I am truly honored to be receiving this prestigious award and am thankful for all of the work that the DGA does to promote diversity in our industry."
Rhimes’ series have always been diverse and inclusive, often featuring gay characters that have earned the writer-producer accolades from LGBT watchdog group GLAAD. Scandalstar Washington became the first African-American Emmy nominee for best actress in a drama since Cicely Tyson in 1995. A black actress has yet to take home the statuette in the category.
For her part, Beers is an EP on Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and Private Practice, and has been honored multiple times for her work as a producer. She is a partner in Shondaland, where she and Rhimes work together to develop and produce additional feature film and television projects.
"I am thrilled and honored to be receiving this award from the DGA," Beers said. "We want to accurately reflect the world in which we live today — and that means ensuring that a diverse workplace exists, both on- and offscreen."
Previous Diversity Award recipients include Bruce Paltrow, John Wells and Christopher Chulack (1997); Steven Bochco (1999); HBO (2000); and Stephen McPherson (2005). The award will be presented Jan. 25 at the DGA’s 66th annual awards.
