Olivia Hamilton is the lovely girlfriend of Hollywood writer and director, Damien Chazelle. Her man is known for his brilliant work on this year’s “La La Land” but Miss Hamilton is also in the showbiz. Keep reading to know Olivia Hamilton’s biography.
Her boyfriend was born Damien Sayre Chazelle on January 19, 1985. The Rhode Island native was born to a writer and professor of History mother; and a French-American computer scientist, Bernard Chazelle. His father is the current Eugene Higgins Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University.
The 31-year-old describes filmmaking as his first love, explaining he tried being a musician for a while.
Damien studied filmmaking in the Visual and Environmental Studies department at Harvard University and graduated in 2007.
While attending Harvard he met his former wife, director-producer Jasmine McGlade. She was his co-worker on several projects and movies.
He debuted as a writer and director in the film Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench. Chazelle has shared screenplay credit with director Ed Gass-Donnelly on The Last Exorcism Part II, 2013.
He is also credited as the screenwriter on 2013’s Grand Piano. Chazelle also co-wrote 10 Cloverfield Lane.
Ever since Damien Chazelle’s La La Land premiered at the Venice Film Festival in August, it’s been hailed as the presumptive front-runner for half of this year’s Academy Awards, especially in the music, visual, acting, and directing categories.
But is not the first time Chazelle experiences a great achievement. His breakout film Whiplash, was nominated for five Oscars, including Best Picture, and won three, for editing, sound mixing, and J.K. Simmons as Supporting Actor.
Whiplash was released in 2014 to an overwhelmingly positive critical reaction –after being in the drawer since 2012. Damien received his first Critics’ Choice Award nomination for writing the screenplay.
