Editor set to cover the kudos season

Christy Grosz has joined Variety as awards editor, writing about the kudos season and coordinating coverage for print, Variety.com and other Variety platforms.

Under the umbrella title the Vote, Variety’s coverage will include innovations among the news and VPlus sections, columns and blogs.

She also will work with the Variety team on Variety’s awards-related events during the buildup to the Oscars.

The awards editor post is a new position, with Grosz reporting to film editor Josh Dickey.

Grosz has been writing for Variety about many topics, including kudos. She has run awards coverage for several other publications.

Variety editor-in-chief Timothy Gray said, “Christy is going to be a major asset as we revitalize our kudos coverage. She’s smart, she’s witty and she understands the pressure, the insanity and the weird fun of awards season.”

Grosz said, “I have overseen awards-season feature coverage for a dozen different seasons and know that no two seasons are alike, with the rules and the zeitgeist constantly changing. This is an exciting opportunity to report on the races in all of their complexity for the world’s preeminent source of entertainment news.”
