Oscar Race Begins
SCA Scores Big with Academy Award Nominations
The SCA family has continued its run of award-season success, with four alumni receiving nominations for Academy Awards. Since 1973, not a year has passed without an alumnus or alumna being nominated for an Oscar.
“We are always proud to see our alumni recognized for their hard work,” said Dean Elizabeth M. Daley. “They join a long list of other USC School of Cinematic Arts success stories, which serve as an invaluable inspiration for our current and future students.”
Jeff Cronenweth ’84, was nominated for best cinematography for The Social Network; Mark P. Stoeckinger ’82, was nominated for best sound editing for Unstoppable; Addison Teague ’92, was nominated for best sound editing for Tron: Legacy; and Lee Unkrich ’90; was nominated for best picture, best animated feature film, and best adapted screenplay for Toy Story 3. Unkrich was honored earlier this year with the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature.
The 58th Annual Academy Awards will be held on February 27th at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
