Amy Kaufman is a senior entertainment writer at the Los Angeles Times, where she began as a staff writer covering film in 2009. She was part of the team that was a 2022 Pulitzer Prize finalist in breaking news for work covering the tragic shooting on the “Rust” film set. As an investigative reporter, she has uncovered allegations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood involving figures like Brett Ratner, James Franco, Chris D'Elia and Russell Simmons. In addition to profiling hundreds of cultural figures – Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, James Taylor – she has reported from the Croisette at the Cannes Film Festival, spent a precious 60 minutes at the Vanity Fair Oscar party and hobnobbed with VIP pooches at the Beverly Hills Dog Show. She is also the author of the New York Times bestseller “Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure,” a behind-the-scenes look at the reality television franchise “The Bachelor.”
