“The Fabelmans,” a biopic based on his own life. In his acceptance speech for best director at the Golden Globes on Jan. 10, the “Jaws” filmmaker admits he has avoided expressing his own tale his whole career. Spielberg received the Oscar for directing.
“I’ve been running away from this narrative since I was 17,” the famed director explained. I threw a lot of stuff into my version of the narrative, “He revealed. “”Throughout my career, I told the tale in bits and pieces,” he remarked, referring to “Close Encounters” and “ET.”

“The Fabelmans” is based on Spielberg’s personal journey to becoming an A-list Hollywood filmmaker. Tony Kushner, Spielberg’s colleague, has been building him up to the prospect of ultimately revealing it for years.
“I never had the confidence to confront the tale full on until Tony Kushner,” he remarked, revealing that the debate about the film began when they were working on “Munich” and continued through their work on “Lincoln” and “West Side Story.”
When the epidemic came in 2020, Spielberg claimed Kushner’s reasoning, combined with his own wife’s, finally set in.”I didn’t know if we, any of us, would get the opportunity to tell any of our tales again in March, April, or May of 2020,” Spielberg remarked. “So we sat down to tell the narrative, and I think everything I’ve done up to this point has prepared me to finally be honest about the reality that being a child isn’t easy.”
Spielberg stated that the film allowed him to introduce himself to individuals who only knew him because of his accomplishments.
“Everyone views me as a success story, and everyone sees all of us the way they see us based on how they obtain the information,” he explained. “But no one truly understands who we are unless we are brave enough to tell everyone. And I spent a lot of time trying to find out when I could tell that narrative, and I found it out around the age of 74. ‘You best do it now,’ I responded.”
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you,” he said. Spielberg also expressed gratitude to his staff for bringing this project to life.
Later that evening, “The Fabelmans” took home the award for best drama motion picture. The prize was given to Spielberg by director Quentin Tarantino.
Quentin remarked to me when he awarded me this prize that John Cassavetes would be very proud,” Spielberg added. He mentioned so since I worked as a P.A. (production assistant) on one of John Cassavetes’ films. I rushed around the set, which had a 16 millimetre camera and a lot of noise, and did everything they wanted…which is why I treat my PAs so well. Because I know how it feels.”
