For all the famous names bandied about on Oscar night, the name on seemingly every other winner’s lips might be foreign to the average moviegoer: David Heyman.

He’s not a famous actor or director, but Heyman, 52, has produced some of the most popular films of the past decade. Most recently, he produced “Gravity” with Alfonso Cuaron — which is why you kept hearing his name, as the film won seven Academy Awards.

“Gravity” marked the second collaboration between the British producer and the Mexican Cuaron, after “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”

Heyman served as a producer on all eight “Harry Potter” films; his other producing credits include ”I Am Legend,” “Yes Man” and “We’re the Millers.”

On Oscar Sunday, “Gravity’s” wins — for visual effects, sound mixing, sound editing, cinematography, editing, score and director — represented the most of any film this year, prompting a parade of thanks for Heyman (and Cuaron).

Ultimately, though, Heyman did not have a chance to return the favor: “Gravity” lost best picture to “12 Years a Slave,” derailing his own podium appearance.
