The event honored the outstanding and creative international contributions of location professionals and film commissions in seven categories of film, television and commercials. The black-tie awards ceremony took place at the Steven J. Ross Theater at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank before an audience of 500, including LMGI members, industry executives and press. Dinner Party Download’s Rico Gagliano served as host.

    Location Manager Chris Baugh (Steve Jobs, Passengers) presented Oscar®-winning filmmaker DANNY BOYLE (Slumdog Millionaire, T2 Trainspotting) with the Eva Monley Award. Accepting the award on Mr. Boyle’s behalf was Production Designer Guy Hendrix Dyaz (Passengers). Founding LMGI member LORI BALTON (Seabiscuit, Inception), the first location professional to be accepted into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, was honored with the Trailblazer Award presented by directors Brad Silberling (Reign, Jane the Virgin). Art Director, Location Scout and Photographer STUART RAVEN BARTER (Thelma & Louise, True Romance, European Marlboro campaign) received the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by long-time collaborator and legendary commercial director Joe Pytka.
