   The Los Angeles Press Club has just announced the 2012 Finalists for the National Entertainment Journalism Awards. The event will take place on November 18th at the Millennium Bilmore Hotel in the Crystal Ballroom. It’s the 5th Annual gala.

   As I previously alluded to, the LA Press Club will honor two-time Oscar-winner Jane Fonda with its inaugural Visionary Award. Legendary actor / director Robert Redford will introduce Ms. Fonda. Jeff Daniels is also scheduled to make an appearance.

The Visionary Award pays homage to an individual within the Entertainment Industry who uses their high-profile status to make the world a better place and to spread information about issues of freedom and social importance.



   Expected A-List attendees include Kathy Griffin, presenting a career achievement award to Janice Min, Executive Editor at the Hollywood Reporter; and James Franco, former co-host of the Academy Awards, and Oscar-nominee (Best Actor). Jane Fonda’s ex-husband Ted Turner, Michael Douglas, and Dolly Parton have expressed their desire to attend.

   The Forgotten Hollywood franchise is well represented. Here are the gracious announced accolades for my literary and journalistic work:
