Bravo to the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for honoring actor-writer-director Paul Mazursky (nominated for four Oscars, for An Unmarried Woman, Harry and Tonto, Enemies: A Love Story, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice) with their 2010 Career Achievement Award. It's hard to argue when LAFCA president Brent Simon says: “It’s impossible to imagine American independent cinema in its current form without Paul Mazursky, in all his multi-hyphenate glory.”

Bravo to the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for honoring actor-writer-director Paul Mazursky (nominated for four Oscars, for An Unmarried Woman, Harry and Tonto, Enemies: A Love Story, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice) with their 2010 Career Achievement Award. It's hard to argue when LAFCA president Brent Simon says: “It’s impossible to imagine American independent cinema in its current form without Paul Mazursky, in all his multi-hyphenate glory.”

The LAFCA's 36th annual awards ceremony will be held on January 15 at Los Angeles' InterContinental Hotel. New members joining the association this year are Karina Longworth and Mark Olsen. I hope I can attend this ceremony, because of all the folks I enjoy having dinner with, Mazursky is the most brilliantly entertaining.
