“`With the TCM Classic Film Festival back in full swing this weekend in Hollywood, I am joining legions of fans in attending the festivities.  I am hanging with Art Kirsch and John Coleman of Celebrating Act 2 as we capture the thrills and ambiance of the event.

“`A poignant moment will take place on Saturday (Day 3) with the presentation of the annual Robert Osborne Award to Leonard Maltin. This award is given to an individual whose work has helped preserve the cultural heritage of classic film for future generations. The honor will take place at 6p (pst) at the Hollywood Legion Theatre and presenting the award will be TCM host Ben Mankiewicz.


“`A well-deserved honor,  Maltin is widely respected among his peers and revered in popular culture for his career as a cinematic critic and historian. He served as the movie reviewer for Entertainment Tonight for three decades and is perhaps best known for his indispensable book Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide and its companion volume Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide.

“`On a personal note, I am thrilled to join a number of journalists in the Writer’s Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for a roundtable with Maltin at 2p. This will be my initial official function with TCM and I am truly humbled to participate in such a newsworthy event. Here is a link of a Celebrating Act 2 chat I had with Maltin in December at the  Hollywood Heritage Museum:
