Onetime assistant to Matthew Broderick, Michael Arndt achieved the ultimate dream for a screenwriter: his first script to be picked up went on to win an Academy Award. When the 2006 film Little Miss Sunshine hit theaters, it went from a sleeper hit to a critical smash, invading the Oscars with nods for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Alan Arkin, and Best Supporting Actress for ten-year-old Abigail Breslin. Arkin joined Arndt in taking home a statue that night, and soon the screenwriter was back to work, helping pen the script for Toy Story 3.
