The beloved Leonard Nimoy aka Spock of the "Star Trek" series has died. He was 83. According to his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
I had a wonderful chance to meet the actor for the "Star Trek" reboot and among all the celebrities I've interviewed, he was the only one who made me nervous. Perhaps because he was an idol of my childhood and he still is to this day.
So long Mr. Spock, may you live long and prosper in heaven!
And the awards season is officially over! Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" was the big winner at the 87th Academy Awards taking home the Best Picture, Director, Cinematography and Original Screenplay trophies. Its closest competition, "Boyhood," only managed one trophy for Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette. Honestly? I still believe that "Boyhood" is a better picture but the Academy loves movies about themselves, hence "Birdman" took the top prize!
Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" won Best Original Score, Costume Design, and Production Design while "Whiplash" received the Best Supporting Actor trophy for J.K. Simmons, Film Editing, and Sound Mixing.
