BFFs and filmmaking partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will receive the CinemaCon® Comedy Filmmakers of the Year Award at this year’s gathering of the National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) in Vegas. CinemaCon, the largest event for motion picture professionals, will take place March 24-27th at Caesars Palace, with the Big Screen Achievement Awards to be held on March 27th.
 
“As writers, producers and directors, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have teamed up to bring audiences around the world some of the most outrageously, insanely funny comedies in recent years. Just take this past summer’s box-office smash This Is the End. Do I need to say more?”, noted Mitch Neuhauser, Managing Director of CinemaCon. “When these two team up, hilarity and box-office success ensue. CinemaCon could not be more thrilled to honor these two talented filmmakers with its 2014 Comedy Filmmakers of the Year Award.”
 
Next up for Rogen and Goldberg is the release of Neighbors which they produced and which has Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne in starring roles. Universal Pictures’ Neighbors was directed by Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and opens in theaters on May 9, 2014.
 
Rogen and Goldberg also have The Interview heading to theaters on October 10th. Goldberg and Rogen co-wrote, co-directed and co-produced the comedy which features James Franco playing Dave Skylark, the “king of the celebrity interview and host of the hit nighttime talk show Skylark Tonight. The brain behind Dave’s empire is his producer and best friend, Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen). Unfulfilled, Aaron yearns to do meaningful work. He scores the chance of a lifetime when he secures an interview for Dave with Kim Jong-Un, the mysterious and ruthless dictator of a nuclear-armed North Korea. As Dave and Aaron prepare to leave for North Korea, they are approached by the CIA and asked to assassinate Kim. They accept the mission, becoming two of the least qualified men ever to assassinate – or interview – the most dangerous man on earth.”
