The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences HONORARY AWARD for MARCIA NASATIR

Marcia Nasatir of San Antonio, TX broke through Hollywood's “glass ceiling” in the ‘70s at a time when gender inequality in Hollywood continued to make headlines.

Marcia achieved success as a producer and as the first woman to serve as vice-president of production at a major Hollywood studio, United Artists, and later served as President of Johnny Carson Productions. She was involved in the making of some of the greatest films in Hollywood history: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” “Rocky,” “Carrie,” “Three Days of the Condor,” “Apocalypse Now” and many others.

When unceremoniously dismissed, she moved on to a career as an independent producer where she continued to fight for films that were difficult to make. She took on “The Big Chill”, a film that had been turned down by seventeen companies and fought to get it financed. Larry Kasdan, the writer/director credits Marcia for getting his picture made.
