Fun at the NEJ


last night the LA Press Club gave out the National Entertainment Journalism Awards

because i’m on the board of directors i was tasked with tweeting the events

we gave two special awards to Forest Whitaker and LA Times movie critic Kenneth Turan


it was held at the beautiful Biltmore in DTLA. Forest is thinner than I was expecting and so humble. it was sweet


the food was good, the drinks were nice, but as always it was very energizing to be around so many talented LA journalists


it was also very nice to sit at the KPCC table and especially nice when Air Talk won an award, Larry Mantle is a classic


Patt the Hat was in the house of course, and nothing could have happened so nice without Diana, the secret weapon of the Club


Jon Regardie of the Downtown News and Mike Roe were in the house. excellent gentlemen


and it was nice to see John Rabe, his husband (far left) and a nice fellow also named Tony.

it’s so funny how ill i felt Friday and didnt think i could do anything this weekend, but when push came to shove i did it

and it was all such a very nice success.

except for the Bears loss. sigh.
