Hollywood Jew ‘Away Message’


Forgive me for not writing sooner, but it is after all, Oscar issue week. And for the past ten days I’ve been sleeplessly slaving away on deadline, which is why I haven’t written.

There is much to catch up on in the world of Hollywood Jews, but the bad news is I’m rushing off to Soho House for an interview (okay, that’s not exactly ‘bad’ news since the views are so lovely) and I’ll be interviewing a Hungarian-born HBO exec who’s a big supporter of the young cohort contributing to American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. The annual AFIPO gala, which kind of like a Jewish Oscar party, is on March 1 at Disney Hall, so go get tickets! 

The good news, on the other hand, is that while I’ve been away, I’ve been working on some exciting, provocative pieces for our Oscar issue (in print next Friday, but online sooner), including a first-person essay about Aaron Sorkin and a Q-and-A with producer Sid Ganis, four-time president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) and its current first vice president.

I hope to blog some more in the coming days—after Shabbat, of course, so in the meantime, Shabbat Shalom.
