Vet takes Acad to a new home

Louis J. Horvitz will helm his sixth consecutive Oscar telecast.

“Lou has an amazing eye and a great ability to find the moments in this unique live broadcast that is the Oscar telecast,” said show producer Laura Ziskin. “He also, of course, brings his tremendous experience to the production and, as a first-timer myself, I feel blessed to have him on board.”

In other Oscar news, Michael Angel, theater operations coordinator for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences since 1993, has been named to the new post of membership administrator.

Angel will be responsible for all membership activities of the Acad, including maintenance of membership records and coordination of membership committees. He also will oversee tickets and seating at the annual Academy Award presentations and Governors Balls, taking over from retired controller Otto Spoerri.

The 74th annual Academy Awards will be held March 24 at the Kodak Theater.
