“Julie and Bonnie are incredibly talented producers — the perfect team to help us celebrate the accomplishments of our honorees,” said Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.
“We are honored and thrilled by this opportunity, as we have such deep respect for The Academy,” Lynn and Curtis added. “With masterful artists like Ms. Reynolds, Ms. Rowlands and Mr. Lee to celebrate, the evening might just produce itself!”
Lynn is the founder of Mockingbird Pictures, which Curtis joined as a partner in 2011. They have produced five films together: “Last Days in the Desert,” “5 to 7,” “The Face of Love,” “Albert Nobbs” and “The Sweet Life.”
Lynn’s other credits include “Mother and Child” and “The Jane Austen Book Club.” Curtis produced “Minority Report” and “AI” and co-produced “Saving Private Ryan.”
