Bridges' moving and multi-layered performances have earned him countless accolades including a Golden Globe win for his performance in "Crazy Heart."

The actor's multi-faceted career includes the cult classic "The Big Lebowski." His first Golden Globe nomination came in 1984 for Best Actor in "Starman." Seven years later he received his second Golden Globe nomination for his performance in "The Fisher King," co-starring Robin Williams. In 2001, he was honored with another Golden Globe nomination for his role in "The Contender," Rod Lurie's political thriller, co-starring Gary Oldman and Joan Allen, in which Bridges played the President of the United States.

In 2017, he received another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor as a retiring Texas Ranger in "Hell or High Water," a modern action bank heist thriller set in West Texas. The critically acclaimed film starred Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham.

Through Bridges' company, AsIs Productions, he produced "Hidden in America," which received a Golden Globe nomination in 1996 for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Bridges most recently appeared in 20th Century Fox's mystery thriller "Bad Times at the El Royale" starring Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson. Additionally, Bridges can be seen in "Living in The Future's Past," a documentary directed by Susan Kucera that focuses on current environmental challenges.

In 1983, Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world. Bridges produced "End Hunger," a three-hour live television broadcast focusing on world hunger which featured Gregory Peck, Jack Lemmon, Burt Lancaster, Bob Newhart, Kenny Loggins and other leading film, television and music stars in an innovative production to educate and inspire action. He is currently the national spokesman for the Share Our Strength/No Kid Hungry campaign that is fighting to end childhood hunger in America.
