On Sunday night in Los Angeles, the year's Academy Awards
will be handed out to the hard-working people who are
employed in the motion picture industry. In addition to the
actors and actresses who form the front line of our
consciousness, are scores of people who go unrecognized
by most of us, but who may be among the joyful
few to receive one of the golden statuettes.
While their frozen smiles will not likely make the morning news,
and their stars will not be embedded into the sidewalk outside Grauman's
Chinese Theater, their pride will not be felt any less,
nor their achievements diminished.
Here's to the folks who surround the stars, who get the film
onto the screen for the rest of the world to enjoy.
