Roger Leslie: Narrative Point of View – A Different Perspective
June 27, 2018
Roger Leslie is a featured speaker at the East Texas Writers Guild Summer Conference on July 14. He will be speaking on Narrative Point of View – A Different Perspective.
As an expert on movies, Roger Leslie has committed to memory enough movie facts to fill an encyclopedia. He uses that knowledge in his fun keynote speeches relating film awards to any group or interest.
One of his one most popular books is Oscar’s Favorite Actors: The Winningest Stars (And More Who Should Be.)
Just as the Academy Awards have an impact upon stars and their careers, their filmic achievements influence the Academy and contribute to the rich history of the Oscars. Upset wins, jarring losses, and glaring oversights have helped define the careers of Hollywood icons, while unknown actors have proven that timing sometimes beats notoriety or even talent.
With detailed discussion of their performances and Awards night results, this book describes how 108 actors earned the Academy’s favor—and how 129 others were overlooked.
