The Milestone Award is the Guild’s highest honor, recognizing an individual or team who has made historic contributions to the entertainment industry.  In the past, Clint Eastwood, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Ron Meyer, Walt Disney, and the 2013 recipients Bob and Harvey Weinstein, have been recipients.

Iger shepherded Disney's successful acquisition of Pixar in 2006; Marvel in 2009; and, most recently, Lucasfilm and the ongoing "Star Wars" franchise in 2012.
