Westchester Steps Out onto Oscar's Red Carpet

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- When the 84th annual Academy Awards are handed out Sunday night, a lot of Westchester talent will be in Hollywood to watch the festivities. Indeed, a lot of Westchester residents are nominated for awards.

Two of the Best Actress candidates – Glenn Close ("Albert Nobbs") and Rooney Mara ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") – are claimed by Bedford, with Close a current resident and Mara a native.

Best Adapted Screenplay nominee Aaron Sorkin ("Moneyball") is a Scarsdale High School alum.

Scarsdale's Julie Anderson produced "God is the Bigger Elvis," a nominated documentary short, and Tarrytown's Rebecca Cammisa directed.

Another nominated documentary short, "Incident in New Baghdad," was written by Katonah's James Spione.

Also Northern Westchester's Joe Berlinger co-wrote the nominated documentary feature "Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory."

The Oscar telecast, hosted by Billy Crystal, begins at 7 p.m. Sunday on ABC.
