Toby
Emmerich

Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group

Emmerich has been riding high the past year on the success of “It: Chapter Two,” “A Star Is Born” (with seven Oscar nominations, winning for best original song) and “Aquaman.” The latter became the highest-grossing DC Comics title of all time, but it could be usurped by “Joker,” which is packing in the viewers and earning strong Oscar buzz for Joaquin Phoenix in the title role. Emmerich began his career at New Line Cinema in 1992, before it became part of Warner Bros., and he continues to oversee the division, locking horror hits this year with “The Curse of La Llorona,” which was made for $9 million and grossed $125 million worldwide, and “Annabelle Comes Home,” with $225 million worldwide.
