The notoriously shy daughter of Oracle founder Larry Ellison has proven she’s more than a fat wallet. Ellison first caught Hollywood’s attention in 2010, when she was an executive producer on the Oscar-nominated western True Grit. A year later, she started Annapurna Films (named after a section in the Himalayas she hiked in 2006) and has turned out a steady stream of critically acclaimed hits ever since, including The Master and Zero Dark Thirty. Last year, Ellison became the first-ever female producer to have two films nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award in the same year, thanks to her backing of American Hustle and Her. Next up: Foxcatcher, the thriller based on the life of Olympic wrestling coach John du Pont that Ellison produced, debuts in November and is already getting Oscar buzz.
