PGA honors Joss Whedon with the Vanguard Award

See ThinkGeek.com for merchandise! http://www.thinkgeek.com/

I cannot wait to see ‘Cabin in the Woods’. Our previous posts on Joss, Dr Horrible, Cabin in the Woods, Firefly (and the dreaded, sometimes great, mostly crxpulent, Dollhouse) here.

I want to see what Joss created when he was let loose on classic horror!

Variety:

The Producers Guild of America has selected Joss Whedon as the recipient of its Vanguard Award, which recognizes achievements in new media and technology.The kudo will be presented at the 21st Annual PGA Awards ceremony on Jan. 24 at the Hollywood Palladium.

Whedon is a producer, writer, director, and creator for TV series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Firefly,” and “Dollhouse” with film scripts including “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Toy Story,” “Alien Resurrection” and “Titan A.E.” He’s penned the comic book series “Fray” and created and produced Internet series “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog.”

“The Cabin in the Woods,” a feature he co-wrote with Drew Goddard, is currently in post-production and will be released in 2011 by MGM.

…”Joss Whedon has mastered the art of melding the newest technology with inspired storytelling, truly exemplifying the spirit of the Vanguard Award,” said David Friendly and Laurence Mark, co-chairs of the PGA Awards.

The latest Anita Blake novel ‘Skin Trade’ is set for tentative release on June 2, 2009..

Laurell has a wonderful in-depth interview with Aimee Levitt of the River Front Times here for any Anita Blake/Merry Gentry fans who may have missed it:

“Well,” she says finally, “the new book is called Skin Trade and it begins with Anita getting a severed head on her desk. I can’t decide if it comes through the postal service or FedEx. Can you send body parts through FedEx in this country? Anyway, it’s an invitation to Vegas.”

Anita, of course, is Anita Blake, the St. Louis-based vampire hunter who is the star of 16 of Hamilton’s 26 books and an old friend to most of the crowd here tonight.
