A Big Oscar Night for Manatt Clients

It has been an exciting awards season for Manatt Entertainment clients New Republic Pictures, LD Entertainment and Hildur Guðnadóttir. The film production company, independent film studio and Icelandic musician contributed, respectively, to Oscar-winning films 1917, Judy and Joker.  

  • New Republic Pictures co-financed Amblin Entertainment’s 1917, which received 10 Oscar nominations and won Oscars for best cinematography, sound mixing, and visual effects. 
  • LD Entertainment distributed the film Judy, whose leading actress, Renée Zellweger, won the Oscar for best actress in a leading role. 
  • Hildur Guðnadóttir, the first woman in over 20 years to win an Academy Award for original score – and the first ever to win for a dramatic composition – was recognized for her work on Joker.

Manatt professionals representing these clients include Manatt Entertainment Leader Lindsay Conner, partners Sophia Yen and Larry Marks, associates Cailey Cavanaugh and Beau Stapleton, as well as attorney Joe Anderson.

We are very proud of our clients and their achievements, and look forward to continuing to support them in their ongoing success!
