THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
Under Daly's watch, the DWA hit machine continued in 2012, with summer release Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted nabbing $740.5 million worldwide, dwarfing competitor Pixar's Brave and its $535 million worldwide haul. The 15-year veteran of DWA, 56, handles day-to-day operations and led one of the year's splashiest deals: DWA's five-year distribution pact with Fox, inked in August. And though Rise of the Guardians was a rare misfire ($34 million in seven days), DWA will have plenty of chances to make up for any lost box-office ground: It will push a dozen movies through Fox's pipeline during the next three-plus years.
Moment I knew I wanted to work in the business: When the video business was just beginning, and I knew these movies would become more than just seeing them in the theaters.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Watching sports. I was very excited that the San Francisco Giants won the World Series.
My indulgence: Multiple lattes throughout the day. We have a Starbucks on campus.
Most surprising songs on my iPod: Lots of James Brown.
Totally starstruck around: Giants infielder Pablo Sandoval, who happens to be nicknamed "Kung Fu Panda."
