“Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera, “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening and “Up in the Air” director Jason Reitman are among jurors voting on prizes for entries at the Sundance Film Festival.

Ferrera, whose career took off after she starred in the 2002 Sundance hit “Real Women Have Curves,” is on the jury for the independent film festival’s key competition — U.S. dramas. The five-member jury announced Tuesday also includes Reitman and director Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”).

Groening is on the five-member jury for U.S. documentaries, which also includes director Jeffrey Blitz (“Spellbound”).

Robert Redford’s Sundance festival opens Thursday for an 11-day run in the ski resort of Park City.
