organization has also selected LA Times entertainment reporter Susan King as
the 2015 recipient of its Roger Ebert Award, and producer Debra Martin Chase,

Gil Robertson and his AAFCA is a crock. I applied to become a member and Mr. Robertson certainly cashed the membership dues that I submitted, but never followed up with any information as to actually being a member. I tried to get in touch with him repeatedly to refund my money and he has yet to do so. Even more insulting is the smug attitude he had when I finally got him on the phone. Totally dissatisfied and pissed off. ||
