After Brett Ratner resigned as producer on the 84th Academy Awards, Brian Grazer stepped in to be his replacement!

Brian Grazer is saving the day! The 60-year-old accomplished producer has signed on to produce the 84th Academy Awards after Brett Ratner resigned the day before.

“I am thrilled to welcome Brian Grazer as my partner and that we will be collaborating to produce an outstanding show,” producer Don Mischer said in a statement.

“It’s very gratifying to be part of a show that honors excellence in the medium to which I have devoted so much of my career,” Brian, who’s never worked on the show before, said. “Don is a legend, and I am excited to work with him.”

Brian is no stranger to the Academy Awards: he’s earned four Academy Award nominations and he won a Best Picture Oscar in 2001 for A Beautiful Mind.
