Rudin, Scott Biography




biography of Rudin, Scott

14 July 1958, New York City, New York, USA


-   Ranked #18 in Premiere's 2003 annual Power 100 List. Had ranked #26 in 2002.

-   Was President of 20th Century Fox in 1986.

-   _The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)_ (qv) was originally considered by Paramount Pictures (the studio at which Rudin had a production deal with), but Paramount turned it down. Disney's Touchstone division produced it, and it became a hit.

-   Left Paramount Pictures to head up the Walt Disney Company's Miramax Films, after 'Bob Weinstein' (qv) and 'Harvey Weinstein' (qv) left to create a new independent film studio. After 'Sherry Lansing' (qv) (retired chairman and CEO of Paramount) and 'Jonathan Dolgen' (qv) (former president of Paramount) left, he said that: "I had a hugely emotional response to Sherry and John leaving and the heart went out of the place for me." (Source: Oscarwatch.com). [2005].

-   Was the inspiration for Buddy Ackerman (played by 'Kevin Spacey' (qv)) in _Swimming with Sharks (1994)_ (qv).

-   Ranked #3 of 50 influential people in The new York Observer's "The New Power Gays" article, June 2011.

-   Is one of only 14 individuals who are an "EGOT", meaning that he has received at least one of all of the four major entertainment awards: an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. The other recipients, in chronological order, are Richard Rodgers, Barbra Streisand, Helen Hayes, Rita Moreno, Liza Minnelli, John Gielgud, Audrey Hepburn, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, Mel Brooks, Mike Nichols, Whoopi Goldberg and James Earl Jones. Three of the 14 recipients, however, did receive one non-competitive award: Barbra Streisand won a Special Tony, Liza Minnelli won a Special Grammy, and James Earl Jones won a Special Oscar.


-   If you're going to spend two or three years of your life working on something, you've got to be making the kind of movie that discusses and influences the culture and is engaged in the world you're living in.

-   [on whether his late release of _Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011)_ (qv) was an attempt to ensure Oscar candidacy] It's a movie, not a worm on a hook.
