When Sandra Bullock's romantic comedy The Proposal hit No. 1 at the box office, moviegoers didn't see Nelson Coates' image on the big screen. But the ACU alum's handprints were all over the project.
For Nelson ('84), The Proposal is the latest in a string of Hollywood films and TV shows bearing his hallmark as production designer.
