David O. Russell
Russell is best known for critically acclaimed black comedies such as Flirting with Disaster (1996), Three Kings (1999) and I Heart Huckabees (2004) -- and, in many cases, on-set conflict. An infamous video of the filmmaker unloading on Huckabees star Lily Tomlin went viral, earning Russell a reputation as an undeniably talented but unpredictable personality.
In 2010, Russell picked up his first Golden Globe nomination, which was followed by an Oscar nod, for the knockout boxing drama The Fighter.
After 10 years of trying to mass-market the revolutionary floor mop she had invented, housewife Joy Mangano strikes gold with a personal pitch on QVC that turns her Miracle Mop into an overnight marketing miracle.
