So... how did you fare with your speculations about this year's Academy Award winners? I didn't do well, missing the boat on quite a few categories including that of Best Picture. I selected Beasts of the Southern Wild to win as Best Picture but Argo, of course, was the big winner. I watched the ceremony Sunday evening and was pleasantly surprised to learn that Duluth East High School graduate, Abe Diaz–now an 18-year-old DePaul University student, was among the six college students selected to participate in this year's ceremony! Check out Peter Passi's article in Monday's Duluth News Tribune HERE to learn more about Abe and how he turned up on the Academy Award ceremony stage this year.
