Alex Kazhinsky of Lincolnwood is this year's Grand Prize winner in the annual Outguess Ebert contest — and tells me, "It's a big thrill to win your contest after playing it for so many years!"
Kazhinsky had a perfect score across all the categories. "For many years," he says, "I have worked as an actor in Chicago's entertainment industry. I've had speaking roles in independent films, web series, and commercials. Some of my most notable roles are the following:
• A corrupt Chicago Alderman named Cunningham in the web series "DaWiseguys."
•Uncle Steve in the short film "When I Was An Elephant," which won the award for Best Branded Film at the 2011 Chicago International Film Festival.
• Russian crime boss in the short film "The Moment."
"Because I'm an actor," he says, "the only thing I'll say about my age is that I'm in my 30s."
He's been playing the contest since the 1992 Oscars, »
