Screenwriter Profile: Joel & Ethan Coen

The Writers:

Often referred to simply as the Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan Coen are the creative force behind such cult classics and acclaimed cinematic feats as Fargo, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Big Lebowski, and True Grit. The brothers have been making films together since childhood, and they always write, direct, and produce their projects together (though sometimes Joel takes the sole directing credit and Ethan takes the producing credit). True Hollywood elite, these guys have been nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Screenplay multiple times and have  won Best Picture once (No Country for Old Men) and Best Screenplay twice (Fargo, No Country for Old Men).
