Congratulations to Barbara Gasser and Ruben Nepales. The two HFPA members are among the finalists in the National Entertainment Journalism awards given by the Los Angeles Press Club. A national contest, it is aimed at entertainment reporters and editors, film and television critics across the country, including foreign journalists, and is open to all U.S.-based entertainment journalists for work published or disseminated between January 1 2010 and June 30 2011.
Barbara Gasser, a German language reporter based in LA and a frequent winner of previous LA Press Club awards, is a finalist in two categories—news print and radio, while Ruben Nepales, from the Philippines, is one of five finalists in the print columnist category.
The awards will be presented at a gala evening at the Biltmore Hotel on Nov 17 when Playboy founder Hugh Hefner will receive a lifetime achievement award.
