Executive producer Steven Spielberg is one of the world's most respected and successful filmmakers.

He reached a new peak with Jurassic Park, which grossed over $913,000,000 worldwide to become the highest-grossing film of all time, and Schindler's List, which earned seven Academy Awards, including Best Director and Best Picture.

This past March, Spielberg was honored with a Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute.

In 1987, he received the prestigious Irving G. Thalberg Award at the Academy Award ceremonies in recognition of his consistent excellence in filmmaking. He was further honored in 1993 at the Venice Film Festival with the Golden Lion Award for Career Achievement, and this February, he received a special Cesar Award in Paris for his body of work.

He has been associated as director or producer on seven of the top films of all time.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial is still the highest grossing film in the U.S. and Canada, and second only to Jurassic Park worldwide.

His direction of The Color Purple in 1986 earned him his first Directors Guild Award. The DGA also nominated him for Empire of the Sun, Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial in addition to Schindler's List. For the last four, he was also nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Since forming his own production company, Amblin Entertainment, in 1984, he has served as producer or executive producer on more than a dozen films, including the Back to the Future trilogy, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Gremlins, An American Tail, The Land Before Time and The Flintstones.
