Stuart Levine

Stuart Levine has been covering television and film for Variety since 1998. He writes about both the Emmy and Oscar races in excrutiating detail and is always willing to offer his opinion on who’ll win and why. Before joining the showbiz ranks, he was a sportswriter for the Los Angeles Daily News, taking in everything from high school football to horse racing, one of his longtime passions. In his limited spare time, he can be found watching “Deadwood” reruns on TiVo or heading off to his next Bruce Springsteen concert. And, when his wife permits, playing golf and/or poker with the fellas.
