THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER
(Paul Brenner) has been honored twice with Academy AwardTM nominations,
most recently for his riveting portrayal of a philosophical hit
man in Quentin Tarantino's PULP FICTION. He also received BAFTA
and Golden Globe nominations for this highly acclaimed role and
was named Best Actor by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association,
among other distinguished awards. He was equally praised as a
Mafioso-turned-movie producer in the comedy sensation GET SHORTY,
singled out by many critics as one of the best performances of
the year and garnering a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in
a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy. In 1998 Travolta was honored
by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts with the Britannia
Award. Also in 1998 Travolta received the Lifetime Achievement
Award at the Chicago Film Festival. This year he was the winner
of the prestigious Alan J. Pakula Award from the US Broadcast
Critics Association for his performance in A CIVIL ACTION. He
was also nominated again this year for a Golden Globe for his
performance in PRIMARY COLORS.
He previously starred in some of the most monumental films of
our generation. He earned his first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations
for his role in the blockbuster SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER, which launched
the disco phenomenon of the late 1970s. He went on to star in
the big screen version of the long-running musical GREASE and
the wildly successful URBAN COWBOY that also influenced trends
in popular culture. Additional film credits include the Brian
DePalma thrillers CARRIE and BLOW OUT, as well as Amy Heckerling's
hit comedy LOOK WHO'S TALKING.
Travolta starred in MICHAEL and PHENOMENON and took an equally
diverse turn as an action star in John Woo's top-grossing action
thriller BROKEN ARROW. He starred in FACE OFF opposite Nicolas
Cage and in SHE'S SO LOVELY with Sean Penn and Robin Wright-Penn,
as well as in MAD CITY, co-starring Dustin Hoffman. He also starred
for Mike Nichols in PRIMARY COLORS co-starring Emma Thompson and
Billy Bob Thornton and A CIVIL ACTION, based on the best-selling
book, for director Steve Zaillian.
