The Creative Coalition has announced its high profile honorees for this year’s eighth annual Television Humanitarian Awards Gala, with the 52-year-old Belizean-Guatemalan American actor and social justice activist making the list.
The Television Humanitarian Awards Gala, which takes place during Emmy week, highlights prominent figures in the television industry, as well as 2022 Emmy Award nominees who use the power of their celebrity for social good.
“Grey’s Anatomy” and co-executive producer and writer Jamie Denbo have also been named the recipient of the Your Voice Carries Weight Award – which honors a television leader for their advocacy work in obesity awareness – for the episode, “Living in a House Divided.”
Variety’s Marc Malkin will host this year’s ceremony, which is scheduled to be held on Sunday, September 11, 2022 in Los Angeles.
“The incredibly talented individuals we are honoring at the TV Humanitarian Awards exemplify Hollywood at its best – dynamic stars who use their voices to make the world a better place,” said The Creative Coalition president and actor Tim Daly.
The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk added in a statement: “We have a long history of honoring entertainment industry leaders for their good work and these days it’s more important than ever to use the platforms of the arts for positive change.”
All proceeds from the special charity event benefit The Creative Coalition’s year-round work to protect and advance the arts.
