Power 50: Scott Rudin


Rudin didn’t do himself any favors by making racially insensitive remarks about the president, which were aired amid last December’s Sony Pictures email hack. But he didn’t go the way of now-resigned Sony co-chair and fellow emailer Amy Pascal, either. By contrast, he found success producing the surprise hit Top Five, which landed director-star Chris Rock a welcome opportunity to discuss race in Hollywood, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, which garnered nine Oscar nominations, winning four. On deck for 2015: Cameron Crowe’s Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper, and Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs, written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Michael Fassbender.
