IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: MIKE NICHOLS - DIRECTOR

Rate this Entry

PBS launched a wonderful new series this evening entitled Faces of America which examines the family history of 12 notable figures in contemporary America. The figures profiled are diverse and include Dr. Mehmet Oz, Meryl Street, Kristi Yamaguchi, Malcolm Gladwell Stephen Colbert and Yo-Yo Ma. I was pleased to see Mike Nichols on the list. Nichols and his family fled Germany for the United States at the age of
seven in 1939 just as the horrors of the Nazis were beginning to
accelerate.

He's always been a favorite of mine from his days as half of a comic duo with Elaine May. He has best become known as a director and has a long list of great films that includes The Birdcage, Postcards from the Edge, Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe, Catch-22, Carnal Knowledge, Silkwood, Working Girl, Angels in America and Charlie Wilson's War. He's also directed a number of well-regarded Broadway productions including Barefoot in the Park, The Odd Couple and Spamalot. 

Nichols has won a truly impressive number of honors over the years including

- seven Tony Awards

- a Grammy

- an Academy Award

- a Kennedy Center Honor

- four Emmy Awards

Most recently, he received the American Film Institute's Lifetime Achievement Award. By the way, winning the "Grand Slam" of an Oscar, Tony, Grammy and Emmy is extremely rare. Nichols is only one of ten artists in history who have won all four. And his 14 awards ranks as the most of any of the ten.
