Halmi wins International Emmy Awards

Robert Halmi Sr., chairman of Hallmark Entertainment, will be honored by the global television community at the Intl. Emmy Awards in November.

Halmi is to receive the Founders Award from the Intl. Council of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in recognition of his creative accomplishments and a body of work that is as well-known abroad as it is in the U.S.

The prestigious Founders Award is considered one of the top honors in the international TV industry.

Halmi has produced nearly 200 TV movies, minis and feature films since the ’60s, including, most recently, “Gulliver’s Travels,” “The Odyssey,” “Merlin” and “Moby Dick.” His slate for the next year includes “Alice in Wonderland,” starring Miranda Richardson and Martin Short, and “Noah’s Ark,” toplining Jon Voight, F. Murray Abraham and Mary Steenburgen.

The Intl. Council’s Founder’s Award is primarily an award for creative achievement and is not necessarily presented annually. Previous recipients include Don Hewitt, exec producer of CBS’ “60 Minutes,” and Muppet creator Jim Henson.

Kay Koplovitz, president of the Intl. Council, said in a statement: “Halmi has created a film and television empire with few rivals. He mines the classic writers, from Jonathan Swift to Herman Melville, Homer to Neil Simon, and turns their work into extraordinary productions.”
