The medal placements were announced at the awards ceremony, which featured Laura Dern, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Greg Kinnear and Mena Suvari, as presenters, alongside Academy President Tom Sherak at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

Eric is an animator, which we all thought was/is great, as we rarely hear/read/write about black animators, even though they are out there. 

Prah attended Ringling College of Art and Design, in Sarasota, FL, and he’s now made his Student Academy Award-winning short film, My Little Friend,available for viewing in full online; so watch it below:
