As we previously reported, Kathleen Kennedy was tapped to receive the Pioneer of the Year award at the Will Rogers Motion Pictures Pioneers dinner at CinemaCon. Kennedy became only the second woman to ever receive the award. The first, Sherry Lansing, sent Kennedy her congratulations.

Sally Field presented Kennedy with the award and discussed the Oscar-nominated producer and now co-chair of LucasFilms' many achievements.  

In an industry that is not and has not been female-friendly, where even today women behind the camera represent only 18% of those working in film, Kathy has beaten those odds the only way a woman can: By being so much better than most everyone else.

Congrats and get cracking on that next Star Wars film.  We know the force is with you.
