Happy Birthday George Lucas!

Billionaire George Lucas celebrates his 71st birthday today! He is a man of many hats. Known as a director, screenwriter, producer, and entrepreneur. 

The Trailer for "American Graffiti"...

George was nominated for two Academy Awards one for best directing and one for best writing. His directing in the film also was nominated for a Golden Globe as well. 

Five years later "Star Wars" had him nominated for the same Academy Awards and Golden Globe. He won the Evening Standard British Film for best movie with "Star Wars." It also won two Saturn Awards for best directing and writing.

"Star Wars" and "The Raiders of the Lost Ark" films turned into franchises and kept the niominations going.

Yes he is very wealthy but he does give quite a bit to charity. I thank him for the films and wish him a happy birthday!
