"IT WAS A GOOD RUN! I want to thank all of my dear friends and family members who followed me through this roller-coaster of a ride from shortlist to Oscar nomination.Don't forget to sign up for the Only Oswego weekly newsletter and follow us on Facebook.
While I did not get the Academy Award this time around, I truly feel I have won in many other ways. You have all been so enthusiastic and supportive of me and my work - I have truly been blessed!
There's still a lot of work to be done with Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall, so it's not over yet - onward and upward!"
