英语新闻:《毕业生》导演迈克·尼科尔斯去世

当地时间星期三,美国著名导演迈克·尼科尔斯去世,享年83岁。尼科尔斯生于柏林,后因恐遭纳粹迫害,举家移居美国。他曾执导多部电影、电视、话剧作品,1967年凭《毕业生》赢得奥斯卡最佳导演奖,电影以外,他还获得过艾美奖、东尼奖和格莱美奖,曾执导过《偷心》《第二十二条军规》《上班女郎》《天使在美国》等片。

 

Mike Nichols,the entertainment icon and husband of ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer, died suddenly Wednesday at the age of 83.

Nichols' death was announced in a statement by ABC News President James Goldston.

"He was a true visionary, winning the highest honors in the arts for his work as a director, writer, producer and comic and was one of a tiny few to win the EGOT-an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony in his lifetime," Goldston said in the statement.


 Nichols was born in Germany in 1931, and came to the United States when he was 7 years old, when his family escaped Nazi Germany. He arrived in America speaking little English, but his enthusiasm for his new country never waned.

He graduated from the Walden School in New York City, and began pursuing theater while attending the University of Chicago in the early 1950s. While studying medicine, he found his true calling – comedy. He joined a comedy troupe in Chicago and teamed up with performer Elaine May. The duo gained national popularity together, cementing their partnership as America's innovative comedy duo.



But Nichols forged his legacy as a director, helming hits on Broadway and the silver screen – from "Barefoot in the Park" and "The Odd Couple" to "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" and "The Graduate." He earned the Oscar for best director for "The Graduate."

 His unparalleled career, which stretched a half-century, included such successes as "Carnal Knowledge," "Working Girl," "The Birdcage" and "Closer." He earned his eighth Tony two years ago for his revival of "Death of a Salesman."

He had recently been working on a project for HBO to adapt "Master Class," Terrence McNally's Tony Award-winning play about opera legend Maria Callas. The project would have reunited him with frequent collaborator Meryl Streep.

Nichols is survived by his wife, children Daisy, Max and Jenny, and four grandchildren.(ABC)
