She was also nominated for producing the Best Picture nominee The Prince of Tides (1991), which she also directed, and for co-writing the original song “I Finally Found Someone” from The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996).

The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
