AceShowbiz - "Shakespeare in Love" producer Donna Gigliotti has been handed the reins of the 2019 Academy Awards.
The veteran filmmaker, who has one Oscar to her name and three nominations for "The Reader", "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Hidden Figures", will take charge of the big show alongside Glenn Weiss, who famously proposed to his girlfriend onstage at the Emmy Awards last month.
"Donna and Glenn will infuse new energy and vision into this 91st awards presentation, and we are excited about a broad-based creative relationship with these two artists," Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president John Bailey says.
"We're thrilled to work with someone as passionate about the Academy as Donna Gigliotti - an Oscar winner and multiple nominee," Academy CEO Dawn Hudson adds. "She and the now-famous Glenn Weiss are committed to making the most of the innovations we've embraced for our 91st Oscars."
Next year's Academy Awards will be held at the Dolby Theater at Hollywood & Highland in Los Angeles on February 24, 2019.
