Ovation Award




2005
Group101Films was very proud to present the 2005 OVATION Award to JOEL ZWICK, director of one of the most successful independent films of all time, MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING.

Joel inspires us because, in addition to his great success with GREEK WEDDING, he has enjoyed a long career of directing some of America's favorite television shows including HAPPY DAYS, MORK & MINDY, BOSOM BUDDIES (which launched the career of Tom Hanks), and more.
