  1. There is no one better than Pete Hammond. His analysis of the Oscar race is hands down the best and most intelligent coverage you can read. And above all that, he’s one of the nicest people in town. I’ve known him for over 20 years and the guy is still as genuine as he was when he worked for Entertainment Tonite. In a town full of phonies, Pete has always been the real deal.

  2. Jaimie Trueblood. . . . You had the “photographer’s eye” . . . .for the good stuff in life. . .even as a little boy. I could not be more proud of you! CONGRATS!
    Love, Mom

  3. How often do the still photographers shift between episodic television and feature film photography? At first glance one might assume the requirements, skills and duties are similar. But seeing how they are listed separately here, perhaps they’re not. Anyway, congrats to all the shooters!
