Steve McQueen

In 2011, Steve McQueen wowed the film world with the controversial drama Shame. But the British director’s follow-up movie 12 Years a Slave literally put the filmmaker on the breakout star map. With his interpretation of the true-life story of Solomon Northup, McQueen created a bold, daring cinematic statement on the horrors of slavery that will be forever imprinted in the heads of all the film’s audience. Now, the 44-year old is on the short list of possible Academy Award-nominated directors for 2014.
