I'm so glad the Chicago Film Critics Organization is active again.After a five year pause,the
Chicago Film Critics Awards /Chicago Comedy Awards were held at the Broadway Playhouse in Water Tower Place.
In the afternoon they held a press conference with a few of the winners being on hand to talk to the media.
James Earl Jones,probably one of the most recognizable voices in film would be receiving the inaugural "Oscar Micheaux" Award presented in honor of the first African-American producer and filmmaker who hails from Illinois.
Chicago native Dennis Farina was to receive the "Commitment to Chicago" Award
and Jason Segal will receive the "Commedia Extraordinaire" Award.
I was not able to attend the actual awards as I had another photo session booked at the same time.
To see the whole line up and for more info on this awesome organization,visit their website at: http://www.chicagofilmcritics.org/
