22 • LMGI COMPASS | Fall 2022 The atmosphere was electric on the balmy Los Angeles evening of August 27 as we gathered to celebrate the 9th Annual LMGI Awards together and in-person! THE POWER OF PLACE Spirits were high as nominees, honorees, members, presenters, sponsors and friends assembled at iconic LA Center Studios in downtown LA for this year's awards show gala. Hundreds more around the world watched the livestream. Walking the red carpet in suits and elegant aire that hadn't le the closet for two years, were nominees from Jordan, Canada, Australia, Amsterdam, London, Berlin, New York, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii and California. Those who could not aend sent well wishes shared during the online pre-show and thank-yous that rolled into the awards ceremony. While honoring the creative work of international location professionals and film commissions bringing stories to life in the real world on television, movies and commercials, the Guild's commitment to diversity and inclusion also shared the stage. From nominated shows to this year's honorees, the importance of who gets to tell the stories and where they are told resonated throughout the proceedings. LMGI President John Rakich set the tone, welcoming those in the packed auditorium "back from the Zombie Apocalypse" and acknowledging those who had first inhabited this place: "We come to you tonight from the ancestral, traditional and contemporary lands of the Tongva, Chumash and Kizh peoples… We recognize them as original historic Indigenous communities of the Los Angeles basin. In offering this land acknowledgment, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty, history and experiences." by Diane Friedman PRESENTER JAMES CROMWELL MARTIN SCORSESE EVA MONLEY AWARD RECIPIENT ORLANDO BLOOM HUMANITARIAN AWARD RECIPIENT JOANELLE ROMERO RED NATION CELEBRATION INSTITUTE TRAILBLAZER AWARD RECIPIENT
