LOS ANGELES, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the second annual Made-In-Hollywood Honors celebration of locally created shows that made it to Emmy nomination, thirty-two programs received MIHH accolades, Thursday (Aug. 7) morning. The tributes were presented at 1600 VINE, the luxury apartment complex which sponsored the honors program, along with the Los Angeles City Council, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, and for the first year, the California Film Commission and FilmL.A. Inc., the state, county and city agencies seeking to return film and television production to the place it started, Hollywood.
Such top TV fare as "Mad Men," "The Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family," "Top Chef" and "Dancing With The Stars" were among acknowledged shows, and the event was filled with passionate calls from the attending public officials and recipients for the California Legislature to pass the upcoming bill, AB 1839, which would create tax incentives at least matching that of those now offered by the state of New York to lure projects which otherwise might well have chosen to "stay home," as Councilman Tom LaBonge stated. Even with a vastly reduced number of productions that resisted the siren call of other states' and countries' tax rebates, the MIHH honoree list showed that much of the top talent has stayed in Hollywood.
That local achievement, reflected in the MIHH recipients list included three Outstanding Comedy Series shows nominated for Emmys, "Big Bang Theory," "Modern Family" and "Silicon Valley," as well as four of the Outstanding Reality-Competition Programs, "Dancing With The Stars," "So You Think You Can Dance," "The Voice" and "Top Chef." Two of the Outstanding Variety Series, "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Real Time With Bill Maher" had Hollywood pedigrees, as did three of the Outstanding Children's Programs, "Dog With A Blog," "Good Luck Charlie" and "One Last Hug: Three Days at Camp Grief." Four of the Outstanding Animated Programs, "Bob's Burgers," "Futurama," "South Park," and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Manhattan Project," and three of the Outstanding Short-Format Live Entertainment Programs, "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifinakis" and "The Soup: True Detective," were Hollywood created. Other TV favorites honored were "Jay Leno's Garage" and "The Writer's Room."
The event's host, three-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globes winner Dyan Cannon, stated, "Come on, Assembly and Senate, defend your industry that has brought so much money and a glamorous image to this beautiful state." Other speakers included Los Angeles City Councilmen Mitch O'Farrell and Tom LaBonge, who presented the City Council proclamations as well as Eve Honthaner, Deputy Director of the California Film Commission, which administers the state's film and TV tax credit program and works to increase motion picture production throughout California; Paul Audley, president of FilmL.A, the official film office of the City and County of Los Angeles, and Leron Gubler, president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Sponsors of the MIHH announcement event included Klein Financial Corporation and Icelandic Glacial.
