   The Margaret Herrick Library at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences welcomed their newest voters for the 2010 Oscar Ceremony in a private reception today. The 133 new Academy members join the over 5,600 voters who   will make their selections for the 82nd annual gala to be held on March 7th. The nominees will be announced on February 2nd. Ballots went out today to the entire Academy membership.

   I’m proud the Margaret Herrick Library recently added my paperback Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History to their shelves.

   Tomorrow the 16th annual SAG Award ballots will be mailed to all of its members across the country for their selection of winners. I’m a voting member of this prestigious award, and I’ve voted every year since the SAG Award’s inception. One year, I was actually on the Television Nomination Committee (year #4). And, my wife and I attended the live ceremony two years ago (year #14). The 2010 awards presentation will be held on January 23rd at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center.

   Good Luck to all the nominees. I’ll announce my voting selection on this blog in the future, since I cherish my right to vote for the SAG Awards. We’ll see how well I do with my choices.

 Until next time>                              “never forget”
