My colleague Gary Lycan was a WINNER this evening at the National Entertainment Journalist Awards, and sponsored by the Los Angeles Press Club. The 5th Annual gala took place at the Crystal Ballroom of the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. Here are the exciting details in print and pictures…
PRINT - NEWSPAPERS OR MAGAZINES COLUMNIST OF THE YEAR was announced with Gary Lycan (above), the radio columnist of the Orange County Register (in Southern California), taking home the trophy. His award-winning story: Sweet Dick Whittington: An Unpredictable Talent. Other nominees included Kathy Griffin, who writes for The Hollywood Reporter; and a columnist for the LA Weekly.
My Forgotten Hollywood blog site (www.forgottenhollywood.com) was awarded 3rd Place in the ENTERTAINMENT BLOG BY AN INDIVIDUAL. Congratulations to Sharon Waxman for her blog Waxword on The Wrap who won the trophy. 2nd Place was awarded to noted actor / blogger James Franco, who writes for the Huffington Post Media Group. I re-post 95% of my stories here on RED ROOM. As a Freelance blogger, I’m thrilled to receive such national recognition.
A-List stars celebrated the career and charity work of the iconic Jane Fonda. Robert Redford and Jeff Daniels provided an entertaining narrative. Others on hand: Lily Tomlin, Melanie Griffith, and a co-star of Daniels and Fonda on HBO’s The Newsroom, Sam Waterston. The legendary actress received the inaugural Visionary Award for her professional and personal contributions to society.

Also enjoying the festivities were my parents and my wife Laurie, who took most of these amazing photographs to help us remember a great evening. I’d like to offer my thanks to Will Lewis and the entire staff of the Los Angeles Press Club for providing a wonderful evening.
