Relativity Media CEO

It was an emotional morning for “The Fighter” producer Ryan Kavanaugh, given the blood, sweat and tears that it took to make the pugilistic pic that has earned six Globes bids.

“Definitely icing on the cake,” the Relativity Media topper said. “Getting all these nominations and to be recognized is really special because it took a lot of emotion to get this film made. It helps that it was a true story, because really it’s a movie about family and perseverance especially in times like these. It tells people don’t ever give up and fight for what you want.”
