In 2015, she was awarded a Kennedy Center Honor for her contribution to American culture through performing arts. She was awarded the Peabody Career Achievement Award in 2019.

Kellett was awarded a Kennedy Center/ACTF Achievement in Playwriting Award for her first play, Plane Strangers, which also went on to win the Del Rey Players Achievement in Playwriting Award, and the LMU Playwright of the Year Award. Kellett went on to earn a MA in Theatre from Goldsmith College, University of London. 

Kellett has been a founding member of the sketch comedy group And Donkey Makes Five, and has written and performed stand-up comedy at The Improv and The Comedy Store. In a successful screenplay collaboration, Kellett's script Passengers and Drivers made it to the semi-finalist round of the first Project Greenlight Competition and she worked for Academy Award-winning writer/director Cameron Crowe on Vanilla Sky.

Along with the other writers, producers, and the cast, she helped to pitch the show to other networks to ensure the show did not end.
Lucrecia Martel is a director, screenwriter and producer. 
Film scholar Paul Julian Smith wrote in 2015 that she is "arguably the most critically acclaimed auteur in Spanish-language art cinema outside Latin America" and that her "transnational auteurism and demanding features have earned her a hard-won reputation in the world art cinema festival circuit". Similarly, film scholar Haden Guest has called her "one of the most prodigiously talented filmmakers in contemporary world cinema", and film scholar David Oubiña has called her body of work a "rare perfection". In April 2018, Vogue called her "one of the greatest directors in the world right now".

Her 2001 debut feature film La Ciénaga (The Swamp), about an indulgent bourgeois extended family spending the summertime in a decrepit vacation home in provincial Salta, Argentina, was internationally highly acclaimed upon release and introduced a new and vital voice to Argentine cinema. David Oubiña called it "one of the highest achievements" of the New Argentine Cinema, a wave of contemporary filmmaking that began in the mid-1990s in reaction to decades of political and economic crises in the country. The film, Oubiña wrote, is "a rare expression of an extremely troubled moment in the nation's recent history. It is a masterpiece of singular maturity".

Martel's succeeding three feature films received further international acclaim: the adolescent drama The Holy Girl (La niña santa) (2004) the psychological thriller The Headless Woman (La mujer sin cabeza) (2008), and the period drama Zama (2017).

Celina Murga is a filmmaker, screenwriter, and producer. Ana and the Others (2003) was her first feature film, following "a woman who after spending many years in Buenos Aires, gets back to her hometown in search of a man loved a long time before”. The film earned global critical success.

Murga's subsequent films over the years continued to gather her attention and praise. Martin Scorsese was so impressed with her film A Week Alone (2007), that he chose her as his protege in a special mentorship program sponsored by Rolex. The film revolves around a range of privileged youth who are abandoned at home in a rural and isolated community, and as time passes, "their innocence is gradually corrupted as they experiment with rule-breaking, ultimately leading to house break-ins around the neighborhood." Murga's latest film The Third Side of the River (2014), is executive produced by Martin Scorsese, and distributed by Match Factory. The film follows a sixteen-year-old boy who is "divided between the urge to follow his own freedom and the expectations that his father projects onto his future."
