Shuler Donner will receive Ace’s Golden Eddie Award at the annual ceremony January 17 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. D’Arcy Carden (“The Good Place”) is hosting.
Shuler Donner’s career spans four decades and began with “Mr. Mom,” the 1983 John Hughes-penned comedy starring Michael Keaton. She went on to produce other notable 1980s films including “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “Pretty in Pink.” The next decade, she produced “Dave” and “Free Willy,” two of the top 10 movies in 1993.
She helped spawn a new generation of superhero films’ box-office dominance beginning in 2000 with “X-Men,” and went on to produce several in the series, including the Ryan Reynolds-starrer “Deadpool” in 2016, which brought in $782.6 million globally.
