THR's Women in Entertainment 2012: Power 100
Morrison's division had another stellar year with the blockbuster success of 3D toon Ice Age: Continental Drift. The fourth installment grossed an astounding $874.9 million worldwide, including a record-breaking international total of $714 million, the best foreign showing on record for an animated film. Upcoming Fox Animation and Blue Sky releases include Epic (May 24) and Rio 2 (2014). One looming question remains in how Morrison, 43, will deal with Fox's new five-year distribution pact with Jeffrey Katzenberg's DreamWorks Animation.
Moment I knew I wanted to work in the business: When my parents took me to a children's film festival in the Bay Area, and I saw The Red Balloon. It made me want to make movies.
Who gave me my first big break: Professor Howard Suber and the good people at UCLA's Film School who admitted me into their producer's program. I came to Los Angeles with great passion and little experience in filmmaking.
Toughest decision I had to make this year: Where to send my son for kindergarten.
Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Go to the playground with my son and husband.
My indulgence: Pilates.
Most surprising song on my iPhone: Burl Ives singing "Froggy Went a Courtin'."
Proudest moment this year: Seeing my child sing "I'm Glad I'm Not a Turkey" at a school Thanksgiving show.
Totally starstruck around: Sergio Mendes, who is returning to work on the music for Rio 2. He is a legend and a gentleman.
What I'd tell my 22-year-old self about working in Hollywood: "Let your curiosity pave your way."
Top three shows on my DVR: House Hunters, The X Factor and The View.
Embarrassed to admit I watch: Yo Gabba Gabba! I watch it with or without my kid.
