“Judd Apatow is indisputably one of the most supremely talented and beloved contemporary filmmakers working today,” said festival directors Tonya Mantooth and Dale Strack in a statement. “His body of work transcends a typical moviegoing experience and enters the zeitgeist in a way rarely seen. On behalf of San Diego, we are beyond thrilled to honor him with a much-deserved award.”
Apatow has directed, among other comedies, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Knocked Up." and "Funny People." His latest directorial effort, "This Is 40," was released in December and was billed as a “sort-of sequel” to "Knocked Up." Apatow also served as a producer on "Bridesmaids" and "Pineapple Express."
