their Lone Star Film and Television Awards, and Christopher Guest’s

writers that make up the association and only films and television
programs shot in Texas and released in the previous year. Another Sony
Classics film will receive honors when the awards are handed out in
Dallas on March 15th, as Dan Ireland’s “The Whole Wide World” nabbed two
awards, one for Michael Scott Myers’ script, and another for Vincent
D’Onofrio for best actor. The best supporting actress award went to
Ashley Judd for her role in the hardly-seen “The Locusts,” while Warner
Brothers’ “Selena” took home prizes for Jennifer Lopez for best actress
and Edward James Olmos for best supporting actor. The documentary award
