Timberlake was most recently nominated for an Academy Award for the song “CAN’T STOP THE FEELING!” from the film TROLLS for which he won his 10th Grammy.

A gifted actor, Timberlake has appeared in diverse films including: ALPHA DOG, BLACK SNAKE MOAN, SHREK THE THIRD and THE SOCIAL NETWORK. He has also won four Emmys for his appearances on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Timberlake is a co-star of the upcoming film WONDER WHEEL, which opens later this year.
