Steve Golin, an Oscar-winning producer and the founder of the entertainment company Anonymous Content, has died. He was 64.
He had been battling cancer, according to Variety.
Golin’s hefty résumé included producing credits for acclaimed movies and television shows such as “The Revenant,” “Spotlight,” “Boy Erased,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “True Detective,” “13 Reasons Why,” “Mr. Robot” and “The L Word.”
For those works, the decorated producer won two Golden Globe awards and an Oscar. “The Revenant” took home the trophy for Best Dramatic Film, while “Mr. Robot” was awarded Best TV Drama in 2016. “Spotlight” later went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture.
He also took home the Palme d’Or for David Lynch’s 1990 film “Wild at Heart.”
Golin got his start in the industry after launching Propaganda Films in 1986. The talent management and video production company later became one of the largest music video and commercial production companies in the world. Golin, along with partner Joni Sighvatsson, were credited with discovering a slew of young talents that would later emerge into household names, including David Fincher, Michael Bay, Spike Jonze, Antoine Fuqua and Gore Verbinski.
He later sold the company and went on to start Anonymous Content in 1999, where he served as the CEO until his death. The company became known for capitalizing on television shows and churning out major studio films.
The entertainment industry mourned the loss of Golin following the news.
Sam Esmail, director and writer for “Mr. Robot,” wrote on Twitter Monday that his “heart is broken.”
“Rest in peace, Steve Golin,” he said.
Filmmaker Brett Morgen remembered Golin for his generosity both in life and in his work.
