Two Princess Grace Award Winners Make Their Mark in Hollywood!

Princess Grace Award winners Jon M. Chu (2001 Film, 2011 Statue Award) and Cary Joji Fukunaga (2005 Film, 2015 Statue Award) have become heavy hitters in the film industry.

On September 20, Jon was listed as one of Hollywood Reporter’s 2018 list of the 100 most powerful people in entertainment. An honor such as this is earned “based on the size and reach of a person's purview" and their ability to influence others with their work (The Hollywood Reporter).  This year’s other “Most Powerful” recipients include: Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep and LeBron James.  Jon's latest success comes on the heels of his record-breaking box office romcom Crazy Rich Asians. Next up for Jon: He will direct the adaption of Lin Manuel Miranda’s (who also made the “Most Powerful” list) Tony Award winning musical In the Heights.  

Emmy Award winner Cary Joji Fukunaga has just been named new director of the upcoming James Bond film, Bond 25. The film is set to begin shooting in March 2019 and has a February 2020 release date. This September, Netflix released Cary’s latest TV series Maniac, starring Oscar winner Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.  His other credits include, HBO’s True Detective, Netflix’ Beast of No Nation and Jane Eyre.
