Nominations for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced Thursday morning, and there are local ties in at least two films up for awards.
Storyboard artist J. Todd Anderson, who worked with the Cohen Brothers their films Fargo and The Big Lebowski, also worked on the film Inside Llewyn Davis, which is nominated this year for cinematography.
A documentary by local filmmakers won an award from the largest documentary film festival in the country. Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar directed Sparkle, and as WYSO's Emily McCord reports, it was an audience favorite.
A documentary by two Ohio filmmakers has been selected as one of 25 films that will be added to the 2011 National Film Registry. As WYSO's Emily McCord reports, it joins movies like Bambi and Forrest Gump as a film worthy of preservation by the Library of Congress.
