We are heartbroken at the passing of groundbreaking actor, filmmaker, & civil rights activist Sidney Poitier. Poitier made history as the 1st Black man to win a Best Actor Oscar, paving the way for generations of African American performers.
We're deeply saddened to hear that the incomparable Sidney Poitier has passed away at the age of 94. A transformative cultural icon, he continually forged new paths to become one of the greatest actors to ever grace the stage and screen.
Peter Bogdanovich passed away. He was a dear friend and a champion of Cinema. He birthed masterpieces as a director and was a most genial human. He single-handedly interviewed and enshrined the lives and work of more classic filmmakers than almost anyone else in his generation.
