Early life[edit] Katzenberg was born in New York City, to a Jewish
Jewish
family, the son of Anne, an artist, and Walter Katzenberg, a stockbroker.[3] He attended the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, graduating in 1969. When he was 14, Katzenberg volunteered to work on Republican John Lindsay's successful New York mayoral campaign. He quickly received the nickname "Squirt" and attended as many meetings as he could.[4] Professional career[edit] Paramount Pictures[edit] Katzenberg began his career as an assistant to producer David Picker, then in 1974 he became an assistant to Barry Diller, the Chairman
Chairman
of Paramount Pictures. Diller moved Katzenberg to the marketing department, followed by other assignments within the studio, until he was assigned to revive the Star Trek
Star Trek
franchise, which resulted in Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). He continued to work his way up and became president of production under Paramount's president, Michael Eisner. The Walt Disney
Walt Disney
Studios[edit] In 1984, Michael Eisner
Michael Eisner
became Chief Executive Officer
Chief Executive Officer
(CEO) at Walt Disney Productions. Eisner brought Katzenberg with him to take charge of Disney’s motion picture division. Katzenberg was responsible for reviving the studio which, at the time, ranked last at the box office among the major studios. He focused the studio on the production of adult-oriented comedies through its Touchstone Pictures
Touchstone Pictures
banner, including films such as Down and Out in Beverly Hills
Down and Out in Beverly Hills
(1986), Three Men and a Baby (1987) and Good Morning, Vietnam
Good Morning, Vietnam
(1987). By 1987, Disney had become the number-one studio at the box office.[5] Katzenberg also oversaw Touchstone Television, which produced such hit TV series as The Golden Girls

and Home

Improvement. Katzenberg was also charged with turning around Disney's ailing Feature Animation unit, creating some intrastudio controversy when he personally edited twelve minutes out of a completed Disney animated feature, The Black Cauldron (1985), shortly after joining the company.[6] Under his management, the animation department eventually began creating some of Disney's most critically acclaimed and highest grossing animated features. These films include Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), The Little Mermaid (1989), Beauty and the Beast (1991)—which was the first animated feature to be nominated for an Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Picture[5]—Aladdin (1992), and The Lion King (1994). In addition, Katzenberg also sealed the deal that created the highly successful partnership between Pixar
Pixar
and Disney and the deal that brought Miramax
Miramax
Films into Disney. Concerns arose internally at Disney, particularly from Roy E. Disney, about Katzenberg taking too much credit for the success of Disney's early 1990s releases.[5][7] In 1993, Katzenberg had lobbied to become Eisner's second in command, which would have meant moving Frank Wells from president to vice chairman, to which Eisner replied that Wells would feel "hurt" in that scenario and then, according to Katzenberg, assured him, "If for any reason Frank is not here … you are the number-two person and I want you to have the job."'[8] After Wells died in a helicopter crash in 1994, Eisner assumed Wells' duties instead of promoting Katzenberg to the vacated position of president.[9] Eisner recalled that " Roy E. Disney
Roy E. Disney
[Walt Disney's nephew and a force on Disney's board who Eisner says "could be a troublemaker"], who did not like him at all — I forget the reason, but Jeffrey probably did not treat him the way that Roy would have wanted to be treated — said to me, 'If you make him the president, I will start a proxy fight.'"[10] Disney board member Stanley Gold said Katzenberg had been brought low by "his ego and almost pathological need to be important."[8] Tensions between Katzenberg, Eisner and Disney resulted in Katzenberg being forced to resign from the company that October. Katzenberg launched a lawsuit against Disney to recover money he felt he was owed and settled out of court for an estimated $250 million.[11] DreamWorks

SKG[edit]

Later in 1994, Katzenberg co-founded DreamWorks

DreamWorks Animation
suffered a $125 million loss on the traditionally animated Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003),[12] Katzenberg believed that telling traditional stories using traditional animation was a thing of the past, and the studio switched to all computer-generated animation.[13] Since then, DreamWorks' animated feature films have been consistently successful financially and critically with several Annie Awards and Academy Awards
Academy Awards
nominations and wins. DreamWorks
DreamWorks
Animation[edit] In 2004, DreamWorks Animation
DreamWorks Animation
(DWA) was spun off from DreamWorks
DreamWorks
as a separate company headed by Katzenberg in an IPO and has recorded mostly profitable quarters since then. The live-action DreamWorks
DreamWorks
movie studio was sold to Viacom
Viacom
in December 2005.[14][15][16] In 2008, the live-action DreamWorks
DreamWorks
studio again became an independent production company, releasing its films through Disney. In 2006, Katzenberg made an appearance on the fifth season of The Apprentice. He awarded the task winners an opportunity to be character voices in Over the Hedge. Katzenberg has been an industry leader in promoting digital 3D production of film, calling it "the greatest advance in the film industry since the arrival of color in the 1930s." When Katzenberg appeared on The Colbert Report
The Colbert Report
on April 20, 2010, he confirmed that from now on "every single movie" that DreamWorks Animation
DreamWorks Animation
produced would be in 3D and gave Stephen Colbert
Stephen Colbert
a pair of new 3D glasses.[17] It was reported that Katzenberg receives an airfare allowance of $1.5 million per year, which was the most of all media-company CEOs.[18] Following NBCUniversal's acquisition of DreamWorks Animation
DreamWorks Animation
in 2016, Katzenberg left his position of CEO at DWA and has been named chairman of DreamWorks
DreamWorks
New Media, consisting of DWA's interests in AwesomenessTV
AwesomenessTV
and Nova.[19][20] However, he stepped down from this post shortly after. WndrCo[edit] In January 2017, reports surfaced that he had raised nearly $600 million from investors for a new venture called WndrCo, which will invest in new media and technology companies. Katzenberg wants to grow WndrCo into a company similar to IAC, founded by his former mentor, Barry Diller.[21] Katzenberg says WndrCo aims to reinvent TV for mobile devices.[22] Political activities[edit]

United States president Barack Obama

Katzenberg is a longtime supporter of Barack Obama. Reportedly "smitten" by Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, Katzenberg pledged his full support to Obama in 2006 if he decided to run for president.[23] During his campaign, Obama praised Katzenberg for his "tenacious support and advocacy since we started back in 2007."[24] Katzenberg has been an avid fundraiser for Obama, doing so while much of Hollywood was still supporting the Clintons. His fundraising prowess has reportedly allowed him to become an "informal liaison" between Hollywood and the White House.[23] Katzenberg co-hosted a fundraiser for President Obama at the home of actor George Clooney
George Clooney
in May 2012. Katzenberg said that the event raised almost $15 million, which would make it the most profitable presidential fundraiser in history.[25] It was reported that Obama campaign officials were not happy about some of the requests that Katzenberg had made. In particular, they were bothered that Katzenberg, who reportedly had made himself "indispensable to Obama", required that the President spend time talking at each of the 14 tables.[23] When the details of Oriental DreamWorks
DreamWorks
emerged, Jennifer Rubin noted that Post the Obama Administration's potential involvement in the deal would not be an issue if not for Katzenberg's May fundraiser for Obama and his “huge campaign donations.”[26] It was reported that Katzenberg was Obama’s top bundler, who, along with Andy Spahn, had contributed at least $6.6 million combined for both of Obama's campaigns.[27] In an MSNBC interview about the donations, Nicholas Confessore noted Katzenberg's desire to build movie studios in China, saying that he would need help from the Obama administration to get this done and that "[e]veryone has interests at stake."[28] Bill Allison of the Sunlight Foundation
Sunlight Foundation
suggested that Katzenberg's long history of financial support for Obama may have influenced the movie deal being "fast-track[ed]" by the White House, noting that DreamWorks Animation "never registered to lobby the federal government."[29] It was reported that Obama arrived in Los Angeles on October 7, 2012, where he joined Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
at Katzenberg's Beverly Hills home for a private meeting with several deep-pocketed Democratic donors. Obama's campaign indicated the meeting was to thank supporters, but some members of the campaign finance committee said that it involved the pro-Obama PAC Priorities USA Action. Members of the White House press corps who had traveled to California with Obama were kept in the garage of Katzenberg's mansion and one reporter called the meeting "unusual".[30] Katzenberg, who had previously donated $2 million to the pro-Obama PAC Priorities USA Action, donated an additional $1 million in October 2012.[31] He donated $1 million to the Super PAC Priorities USA, which supports Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton
in the 2016 presidential race.[32] In June 2016, the Democratic National Committee cyber attacks allege that Katzenberg donated $3 million to the Hillary Clinton campaign, though this information has not been verified.[33] In October 2016, he hosted a $100,000-per-person fundraiser at his Beverly Hills residence with President Barack Obama
Barack Obama
as the main attraction.[34] In 2018, following the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, Katznberg pledged $500,000 to the March for Our Lives.[35] SEC investigation[edit] The Securities and Exchange Commission launched an investigation in April 2012 into accusations that Katzenberg had bribed Chinese officials in an effort to obtain distribution rights, as Joe Biden
Joe Biden
was negotiating a deal to increase film quotas.[24][36] SOPA/PIPA[edit] Katzenberg took a leading role in pushing the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA); Hollywood reportedly saw piracy as "an existential threat." When the White House announced its opposition to the bill in January 2012, Chris Dodd, the former Senator and head of the Motion Picture Association of America, the film industry's lobbying organization, contacted Katzenberg to obtain more information about the president's plans. When Dodd reportedly asked him to intervene, Katzenberg declined, but "sought to soothe hurt feelings and lay the groundwork for a deal more friendly to Hollywood." Katzenberg's office contacted Obama and urged him to contact other studio chiefs in order to reaffirm their support. Obama would take the advice, making Katzenberg one of the few Hollywood executives working on brokering a compromise with Silicon Valley.[23] Special
Special
awards[edit] The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced in September 2012, that the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award
Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award
would be presented to Katzenberg at the Oscar ceremony in 2013, in acknowledgment of his role in “raising money for education, art and health-related causes, particularly those benefiting the motion picture industry.”[37] During the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, the jury awarded Katzenberg an honorary Palme d'Or, the festival's highest prize. Katzenberg compared the distinction to the earlier Academy recognition.[38] Personal life[edit]

Katzenberg married Marilyn Siegel, a kindergarten teacher, in 1975. They have twin children, Laura and David.[39] David is a television producer and director.[40][41] Katzenberg and his wife have been highly active in charitable causes. They donated the multimillion-dollar Katzenberg Center to Boston University's College of General Studies, citing that the school gave their two children the "love of education."[42] They also donated the Marilyn and Jeffrey Katzenberg

at the 2013 American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
Governors Awards Presentation[43] on December 1 at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center.[44] Katzenberg has an estimated worth of $800 million according to Forbes. Katzenberg is reported to have donated over $3.5 million in political contributions since 1979: 33% ($1.171+ million) to Democrats, 66% ($2.33+ million) to special interest groups without party affiliations, and less than 1% ($7,000) to Republicans.[45] He was awarded an honorary doctorate from Ringling College of Art and Design on May 2, 2008.[46] References[edit]
