HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) 11/30/07 – It’s that time of year again when the holidays have hit and on top of all that it’s award show time too. The 12th Annual Satellite Awards are almost here and below is a list of their nominations. Also, the awards show is paying homage to a very special color this year…green.

The International Press Association (IPA) is a journalistic organization which not only rewards positive movements in the entertainment industry, but also specifically focuses on new innovations in Hollywood. Nowadays, the industry refers to the endeavors as new media. Specifically, this is the main subject being wrangled about by writers and producers in a strike that many hope can be diffused soon.

In the meantime, the award shows must go on and along with that purpose, comes an awareness of concerns, which relate to the entertainment industry as a whole.

“Environmental issues touch every aspect of filmed entertainment – from production to marketing to distribution – and our member journalists who cover the industry acknowledge this in their own work covering trends in the industry,” said Mirjana Van Blaricom, IPA President.

She added, “For the show this year, we at the IPA wish to underscore and celebrate environmentally motivated changes and improvements already made within the entertainment community by literally going ‘green’ with our VIP arrivals.

Another move by the IPA was to establish an award honoring innovative women in Hollywood. The Mary Pickford Award is in recognition of “outstanding artistic contribution to the entertainment industry,” said Van Blaricom. A few past Pickford recipients include Jodie Foster and Susan Sarandon.

In 2001, the IPA added the Tesla Award in recognition of “visionary achievements in filmmaking technology” and named it in honor of the Serbian-American visionary Nicola Tesla, the IPA said. A few past recipients include George Lucas and James Cameron.

The IPA’s newest honor, called the Auteur Award, was first bestowed upon Hollywood greats George Clooney and Robert Altman for their influence over all elements of film production.

And the nominees are:

For a dramatic motion picture the nominations are: “The Lookout” (Miramax); “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead” (ThinkFilm); “Away From Her” (Lionsgate); “Eastern Promises” (Focus Features); “No Country For Old Men” (Miramax Films) and “3:10 To Yuma” (Lionsgate).

    I see you have included some information about International Press Association which is our companies name and the IPA mark is a registered trademark of our organization.

    Can you tell me a bit more about the IPA you mention in your article. Could this be the International Press Association Hollywood?

    If so I would appreciate a correction in your article as it may confuse readers.

    Sincerely,

    Len Rapoport
