Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

After making a huge splash with his debut feature, "Boyz N the Hood" (1991), writer-director John Singleton was hailed as being a bright new talent and perhaps even the next Martin Scorsese. "Boyz" put Singleton on the map when he became both the youngest person and first African-American to be nominated for Best Director at the Academy Awards. Full of promise and endless possibilities for his next feature, Singleton's next two films were "Poetic Justice" (1993) and "Higher Learning" (1995), both well-acted and critically praised. Hired for the first time for a studio film, he directed the racially charged "Rosewood" (1997), which also resonated with critics and audiences. Singleton drew a fine performance out of Samuel L. Jackson for the remake of "Shaft" (2000), before returning to South Central for the "Boyz" companion piece, "Baby Boy" (2001). He continued to make critically-acclaimed movies that also spoke to audiences.
