Geez, how could I have missed THAT news? I'd attended the premiere and was on filmmaker Scott Hamilton Kennedy's email list, for crissakes.
Anyhoo, what a treat to see Scott on the big Oscar screen in a montage of nominated documentaries, then to see him nervously hearing his name and waiting for the winner to be announced – "Man on Wire".
But in the world of garden-related movies, it really IS an honor just to be nominated. And in the case of this cause-within-a-movie – the cause being to win back the land for South Central LA's awesome community garden – getting this kind of attention can only help. We all hope.
Here's Scott on the red carpet, taking every opportunity to promote community gardens. Scott, you're the man!
