We are honored to announce the LAFS alumni who were credited on four of the Oscar-winning films including BlacKkKlansman, Black Panther, First Man and If Beale Street Could Talk. Their roles ranged from property master to drone safety technician to supervising art director.
We are extremely proud of our alumni’s contributions and continued success in the entertainment industry. As Lady Gaga passionately stated in her acceptance speech for best original song— “I have worked hard for a long time, and it is not about winning, but it’s about not giving up.”
“If you have a dream, fight for it. There’s a discipline for passion, and it’s not about how many times you get rejected or you fall down or beaten up, it’s about how many times you stand up and are brave,” added Gaga.
Even though we won’t know the Oscars’ official ratings until later this week, the 91st Academy Awards managed just fine without a host this year. The three-plus hour ceremony rolled along smoothly with comedic appearances from Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey to name a few. The Academy traded the opening monologue for a performance by Queen and Adam Lambert.
Our legacy lives on through the talented alumni who dedicate their craft to an art form our school has served for 20 years.
