“Paula’s expertise, coupled with her love for film, makes her the ideal person to produce this special event,” said Boone Isaacs, president of AMPAS, in a statement. “She is certain to deliver an exciting and memorable evening for our honorees and guests,” she added.

At the non-televised 2013 Governors Awards, which will take place on November 16 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center, the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award will be presented to Angelina Jolie and three Honorary Awards will be presented to Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Piero Tosi. 

“It is a privilege to work with the Academy to produce this year’s Governors Awards, honoring iconic talents who have deeply influenced our contemporary culture with their artistry,” Wagner said in a statement. “I look forward to being a part of an event that illuminates and supports these artists’ incredible achievements,” she added.

Wagner has produced or executive-produced more than 20 films, including the first three “Mission: Impossible” films, “Vanilla Sky,” “The Others” and “The Last Samurai,” the television film “Five” and three Broadway plays.

After starting as an actress, Wagner went on to become a top-ranking talent agent, co-founder of Cruise/Wagner Productions with Tom Cruise and CEO for United Artists. Currently, she independently produces film and theater through Chestnut Ridge Productions and is an adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University.

She is a member of AMPAS, the Producers Guild of America (PGA) and The Broadway League and sits on the following boards: PGA, the Film Forum, American Cinematheque and the National Film Preservation Foundation.
