Academy Award-winning actress and director Anjelica Huston continues her renowned family’s legacy in film, which began with her grandfather, Walter Huston and her father, John Huston.
Throughout her career, Huston has received a multitude of awards for her work, including many honors from the National Society of Film Critics, two Independent Spirit Awards, the Los Angeles and New York Film Critics Awards and an honor from Women in Film.
Huston received a Best Supporting Actress Oscar® for her role as Maerose Prizzi in the black comedy “Prizzi’s Honor,” in which she starred opposite Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner.
Her directorial debut was an unflinching adaptation of Dorothy Allison’s best-selling memoir, “Bastard Out of Carolina,” receiving Emmy Award and Directors Guild Award nominations. Huston directed, produced and starred in “Agnes Browne,” which was presented at the Directors’ Fortnight at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.
Huston is also a New York Times bestselling author. Her two-part memoir, A Story Lately Told, and its sequel, Watch Me, were published by Scribner in 2013 & 2014 respectively.
