Mike Nichols was a distinguished German-American theatre and film personality. Born in Germany and immigrated to the US as a kid, he started his career in the 1950s with an improvisational cabaret revue ‘The Compass Players’ and later formed improvisational comedy duo ‘Nichols and May’ with Elaine May. The comedy duo won ‘Grammy Award’ for Best Comedy Album and with this Nichols became the first non-American comedian to win a Grammy. Three of their comedy albums were charted in the Billboard Top 40. Following disbandment of the duo, Nichols focussed into directing plays and in no time earned name as a master in his work extracting the best out of his performers, whether seasoned or new. Starting with Neil Simon's ‘Barefoot in the Park’, throughout his career he directed over 25 ‘Broadway’ plays of which many were produced by him. His debut in film direction happened with Warner Brothers’ ‘Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ Over the years he delivered several spectacular and commercially successful films marked with versatility and insight. Some notable ones were ‘The Graduate’ that earned him his sole ‘Academy Award’ as Best Director; ‘Silkwood’; ‘Working Girl’; ‘Carnal Knowledge’; ‘The Day of the Dolphin’; ‘Closer’; and ‘The Birdcage’. His films fetched 42 ‘Oscar’ nominations and bagged seven of them. He remains one of the two persons to have earned a ‘PEGOT’ that is winning ‘Peabody Awards’, ‘Emmy Awards’ (Four), ‘Grammy Award’, ‘Oscar’ and ‘Tony Award’ (nine). He also won three ‘BAFTA’ awards. He was honored with ‘National Medal of Arts’ in 2001 and ‘AFI Life Achievement Award’ in 2010 among other honors.
