Heather Parry has been involved in the production of several commercially and critically successful films dating all the way back to 2005. Her films have earned various awards and accolades.
During her time with Happy Madison, she helped produce several financially successful and popular movies. When she worked with Live Nation, however, she went on to produce even bolder and more critically beloved movies. This is first seen with her first project in the company, a documentary called Eagles of Death Metal: Nos Amis (Our Friends). This was a daring documentary that follows the band, Eagles of Death Metal, as they discuss the events of the Paris terrorist attack and its effect on them. The film was adored by critics and even went on to get nominated for Best Documentary and Best Music Documentary for the Critic’s Choice Awards.
Parry went on to her next project with even more vigor. What followed was another documentary Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story. This one following the people behind Bad Boy Records as they reunite in Brooklyn for one of the biggest reunions in hip hop history. This one went on to win the Hollywood Documentary Award at the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards. The movie also received the Hermes Platinum award for documentaries. Gaga: Five Foot Two, another documentary that she produced, also went on to win this award.
At this point, she has had a string of award-winning documentaries, but her biggest feature was yet to come. In 2018 her most successful project date was released: A Star is Born. The film, which was directed by Bradley Cooper, starred Lady Gaga, Cooper, Dave Chapelle, Andrew Dice Clay, and Sam Elliott. The film managed to gross 435 million dollars worldwide and was showered with awards on a global scale. The movie was nominated for a total of eight Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, and seven British Acadamy Film Awards (known as the BAFTAs). A Star is Born went on to win numerous prestigious awards, such as the Satellite Award for Best Cinematography, Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Actress (going to Lady Gaga), and even a BAFTA award for Best Film Music. Speaking of music, the featured song ‘Shallow’ won the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
