Jordan Horowitz (born April 10, 1980) is an American film producer. He is best known for producing the musical comedy-drama film La La Land that earned numerous awards and nominations including a nomination for Academy Award for Best Picture with producers Marc Platt and Fred Berger.
Horowitz was raised in a Jewish family in Westchester County, New York, where he played for a Jewish temple basketball team in the same league as producer colleague, Fred Berger. He is a 2002 graduate of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
At the 89th Academy Awards, presenters Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announced that La La Land as the winner of Best Picture. However, they had mistakenly been given the envelope for Best Actress, a category in which Emma Stone had won for her role in La La Land several minutes prior. When the mistake was realized, Horowitz rushed to the microphone to announce Moonlight as the correct winner, and then presented the Oscar to the winning producers. This occurred after PricewaterhouseCoopers representatives appeared on stage to discuss the mistake with the team from La La Land and Warren Beatty.
Horowitz is married to Julia Hart, who is a Hollywood writer and director, known for The Keeping Room (2014), Miss Stevens (2016) and Fast Color (2018).
