WCRX-FM's Ryan McKiddy Interviews Academy Award Presenter AJ Young
(L-R) WCRX-FM's Ryan McKiddy and AJ Young
Ryan McKiddy recently sat down with
Columbia College Chicago Film Major AJ Young to discuss his appearance on
stage at the Oscars, handing statuettes to presenters at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
Young was one of six winners of the "Oscar Experience College Search," a contest created by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and MTVU
, aimed at current college students who are interested in pursuing careers in film. In the press release announcing the winners, Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron say they created the contest because they "felt that every person on the Oscar stage should have passion for film and its future, and there is no better way to inspire young filmmakers than to make them part of film's most important night."
