Matthew Belloni

Editorial Director, The Hollywood Reporter

The inside scoop on pursuing the Hollywood beat – and how the “wake-up call” of Weinstein changed the industry in more ways than one

29th November 2018

Matthew Belloni is editorial director of the Hollywood Reporter. A former attorney, in 2008 he swapped the courtroom for the newsroom, two years after becoming their entertainment law editor. Now in charge of a global brand, he oversees 150 editorial staff who produce an array of multimedia content for an audience of over 35 million worldwide. In this in-depth interview, he reveals the unglamorous reality of red carpet reporting, describes the “colossal failure” of the Academy to make the Oscars watchable – and discusses how the new ‘post-Weinstein’ Hollywood has given filmmakers, particularly women, the freedom to tell more diverse stories.
