Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr Back In Publicists Guild Race

The Publicists Guild has nominated Deadline co-Editor-In-Chief Mike Fleming Jr for its Press Award for a fifth time this morning as it revealed its annual nominees. He has not won the award yet, so please insert your best Susan Lucci jokes here. We do hear with five nominations you get a free T-shirt but that has not been confirmed.

The International Cinematographers Guild’s 53rd Annual ICG Publicists Awards Luncheon is set for February 26 at the Beverly Hilton. It has already announced that Open Road CEO Tom Ortenberg will receive the Motion Picture Showmanship Award, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf the Television Showmanship Award and a Special Award of Merit will be presented to lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman. The annual Lifetime Achievement Award will be announced next.

Here’s the full list of nominees, which includes a cool nom for Murray Weissman, the pioneer in awards campaigning whose nearly 70-year career saw him representing the likes of Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg. He died in December at age 90.
