I must confess, before I go on with this feature, that when I was 12, my girlfriends were obsessed with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison, so much so that when they played Beatles, I was Yoko Ono.

Paul Shaffer and the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation founder and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band member, Steven Van Zandt, hosted the rock 'n' roll New York premiere of Ron Howard's The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, written by Mark Monroe.

‘Star Wars,’ ‘Empire’ Top Publicists Guild Awards

26 February 2016 3:05 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood publicists have awarded “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with the Maxwell Weinberg Showmanship trophy for top publicity campaign for a movie last year.

The award was announced at the 53rd Annual Icg Publicists Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel with more than 900 attending.

The seventh “Star Wars” movie launched Dec. 16 and has grossed more than $2 billion at the worldwide box office for Disney. Michelle Sewall, Disney’s senior VP of publicity, said that “The Force Awakens” presented challenges because of the unique nature of the franchise and its relation to the fanbase.

“We did exercise incredible restraint in the campaign,” she said. “You could not do anything you had done  before.”

Fox’s second season of “Empire” won the best publicity campaign in television. The music industry series has been renewed for a third season.

The guild’s Les Mason Award was given posthumously to publicist Murray Weissman, who died in November. »
