Oscars: 34 Legendary Producers Gather for THR's Once-in-a-Lifetime Class Photo

Winners and nominees -- past and present -- assembled at the Beverly Hills home of Robert Evans on Feb. 19 for The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive photo shoot.

This story first appeared in the March 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

THR deputy photo editor Carrie Smith, senior editor Stacey Wilson and awards analyst Scott Feinberg managed to convince 34 Oscar-winning and -nominated producers of 48 movies to assemble at Evans' Woodland estate in Beverly Hills. "We decided to aim big and gather a cross-section of generations," says Feinberg.

Quincy Jones (The Color Purple) arrived fashionably late to a hero's welcome; Gibson wore the same shirt as Jon Landau (Titanic), who quipped, "Did you bring another shirt?" The shoot also reunited Fred Roos (The Godfather Part II) and Michael Phillips (The Sting) after 40 years.

"Knowing that we were among some of the greatest personalities in the history of cinema was amazing," says Wilson.
