Editor's Viewpoint: Crush on Oscar
It is the biggest event in the film industry and Belfast will be well represented when the Oscars take place next month.
Crush, a short film written by a Belfast man, Michael Creagh, starring his 10-year-old son Oran, and produced by Hole in the Wall Gang member Damon Quinn, has been nominated for an award.
So as they dust down their tuxedos, fix on their best smiles and practice their walk up the red carpet, we wish all the cast of the film every success come judging night. And if they don't win they can always console themselves that neither did such giants of the screen as Cary Grant, Richard Burton, Steve McQueen or Peter O'Toole during their illustrious careers.
