J.J. Abrams received the 2013 International Emmy Founders Award at the International Emmy Awards ceremony at the Hilton New York in Manhattan on Monday night. The award was presented to Abrams by Zachary Quinto, who played Spock in the Abrams-directed films Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness. The International Emmy Awards recognize excellence in television programming produced outside of the United States.
"It's a privilege beyond words to work in television," Reuters quoted Abrams as saying, as he tipped his cap to colleagues, friends and family, most notably his wife, Katie, whom he thanked "for her support and brutal honesty."
