The Producers Guild of America announced Monday that Bombshell, which also stars Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie, will receive the Stanley Kramer Award, which is given each year to a movie or individual for promoting “public awareness of important social issues.”
The award will be handed out at the PGA’s annual ceremony scheduled for Jan. 18 in Los Angeles.
Bombshell dramatizes the downfall of the late Fox News founder Roger Ailes, following allegations of sexual harassment that shook up the top-rated cable news station and helped create the #MeToo movement.
John Lithgow plays Ailes while Kidman plays former network host Gretchen Carlson. Nashville actress Connie Britton plays Ailes’ wife, Beth.
