Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on stripping Harvey Weinstein from Academy membership following allegations of sexual assault and abuse] As a new member, I don't know much about disciplinary precedents, but I would personally like to see him removed. I think anything we can do to create a culture of accountability, and to show support for women who have been victimized by this kind of behavior, is a good thing. See more »

Trivia:

Graduated from Harvard, which is also where he met fellow collaborator and best friend, Damien Chazelle. See more »

Trademark:

Often composes jazz score for film, so far including in Guy and Madeline on a Park bench (2009), Whiplash (2014) and La La Land (2016).

Star Sign:

Aquarius
