Wes Anderson

Wesley Wales Anderson is an American filmmaker. His films are known for their eccentricity and unique visual and narrative styles. Cited by some critics as a modern-day example of the work of an auteur, three of Anderson's films — The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel — appeared in BBC Culture's 2016 poll of the greatest films since 2000. Anderson was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, as well as the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature for the stop-motion films Fantastic Mr. Fox and Isle of Dogs. With The Grand Budapest Hotel, he received his first Academy Award nominations for Best Director and Best Picture, and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and the BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay. He currently runs the production company American Empirical Pictures, which he founded in 1998.
