The Oscars

Today is one of those days that cinephiles mark on their calendars months in advance.

I love the Oscars and I was fortunate to cover them in person back when I lived in L.A.

Now, I edit other folks copy on them, but I am having a lot of fun today.

I want to give a shout out to a local crew for “Hell and Back,” nominated as a documentary feature and produced through a crew at Temple University.

Second kudos to Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis and “The Help” because those are three other nominees of color in this year’s Oscars.

And my last hurray goes to Melissa McCarthy and “Bridesmaids”. Thanks Academy for recognizing a comedy that women enjoy!
