Scott Rudin

A leading producer of diverse Hollywood features and Broadway productions, Scott Rudin was seen as a show business wunderkind when he was named President of Production at 20th Century Fox at the age of 27. Rudin went on to spend nearly a decade producing steady box office hits for Paramount Pictures, earning as much of a reputation for delivering high quality dramas, comedies and thrillers, as for his notoriously quick temper and revolving door of employees. Shortly after settling into a deal with Disney in 2004, Rudin hit a career high mark when the Coen Brothers' "No Country for Old Men" (2007) - which he had produced - and Paul Thomas Anderson's "There Will be Blood" (2007) -which he had executive produced - were both nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture. Along with the Coen Brothers, he would win Best Picture for "No Country for Old Men."
