Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge, together with film and TV actress Angie Dickinson presented 15 Emmy-nominated productions with the first Made In Hollywood Television Awards yesterday at a ceremony at 1600 Vine’s Heart of Hollywood Terrace on the site of the historic Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant. For the past two years, LaBonge has championed the feature film Made In Hollywood Awards program in which both winners, The Artist and Argo, went on the win the best film Oscar.

“These awards honor the producers, studios and artists who elected to make their excellent product here in the entertainment capital of the world where it all began and where it has always been and still is done best,” said LaBonge. “I asked Angie Dickinson to join me for this occasion because, in addition to her beauty and talents, she exemplifies the determination to bring production back to its home. At her insistence, all episodes of her long-running Police Woman series were made locally rather than a previously determined out-of-state location.”

Other speakers at the event included Penelope Ann Miller, star of the first recipient of the Made In Hollywood Award, The Artist. “The interest of actors take in supporting the resurgence of production in Hollywood and the full employment of their co-workers in other crafts,” She noted.

Also speaking were co-sponsors Hollywood Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, Leron Gubler, and Klein Financial’s Robert Klein. Former Publicists Guild president Henri Bollinger spoke of the Hollywood workforce’s support for the new awards and their objective of bringing jobs back.

“The awards this year are an important step in recognizing one of the most critical aspects of filming in Hollywood – and that’s television,” said newly elected L.A. Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, whose district includes parts of the Hollywood area. “Hollywood was once the domain of television production, and now has seen a dramatic decrease. The awards today bring attention to that loss, and the ever growing need to return Hollywood to the top of the TV production charts and a rebirth of the Golden Age of Hollywood”
