Jason Reitman, Up in the Air
Two-time Oscar® nominee Jason Reitman has only directed three feature films, but he's no stranger to Hollywood. Growing up, it was his father, Ivan Reitman, who received recognition as the director of hilarious hits like Ghostbusters and Stripes. In 2005, Reitman directed his first feature, Thank You for Smoking, which was nominated for two Golden Globes®. After this early success, Reitman teamed up with screenwriter Diablo Cody for the offbeat comedy Juno, for which he earned his first Oscar nomination. His latest nomination is for Up in the Air, about a corporate downsizer who is passionate about his solitary way of life until an eager young colleague and a beautiful woman turn his idea of happiness upside down.
