“With Tim’s vast experience and expertise  in covering of all things Hollywood, we felt there was no one better suited to be our dedicated expert on the high-profile awards circuit,” said Claudia Eller, editor-in-chief, film, to whom Gray will report.

Gray, who has had a long and distinguished tenure at Variety, is the author of several books, most recently “Variety: The Illustrated History of the World from the Most Important Magazine in Hollywood,” published in 2012 by Rizzoli.
