After a successful, decades-long career, one of entertainment’s best has passed away. Steve Golin, an Oscar-winning producer, died over the weekend.

According to reports, Golin passed away on Sunday night in Los Angeles. He was 64 years old at the time of his death. Sadly, Golin had been battling a rare form of cancer for the last decade.

According to Daily Mail, Golin was diagnosed over ten years ago with a rare form of bone cancer. At the time of his diagnosis, he had to have his left shoulder blade removed.

Golin had an extremely successful career as a producer. He won the Oscar for best picture in 2016 for "Spotlight," a film starring Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, and Rachel McAdams.

Other popular movies that Golin produced were “The Revenant” in 2015 with Leonardo DiCaprio, “Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind” in 2004 with Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet, and, most recently, “Boy Erased.”

Beyond movies, Golin worked on several TV shows as well. He recently worked on HBO’s “True Detective.” In 2016, he received a Golden Globe for best TV drama for “Mr. Robot.” He also worked on “Quarry,”  “The Alienist,” and “13 Reasons Why.”

The producer was also an entrepreneur. Golin founded Anonymous Content, an entertainment company. Additionally, he founded Propaganda Films, a company that produced music videos.

Golin is survived by his two children, Ari and Anna.

Please be praying for his family during this sad time. Though he had been suffering for a long time, any loss is difficult. Share your prayers here. In other recent news, prayers are needed after a massive 6.1 earthquake hit and began "knocking buildings down."
