She’s also been a member of the board of governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences and on the board of the American Cinema Editors.

Littleton was nommed for an Oscar on “E.T.” and has worked on seven films with Lawrence Kasdan, including “Body Heat,” “The Big Chill” and “Grand Canyon,” and five with Jonathan Demme, including his latest documentary, “Bob Marley: Stay With the Rhythm.”
