LESLIE CRISS: 90th Academy Awards: My Favorite Favored To Win

"On the very first day that I arrived in Los Angeles to compose the score for the [ 1969] film "Goodbye, Columbus," I was introduced to Henry Mancini over lunch at the Paramount commissary. Hank offered to sponsor me to become a member of the motion picture academy that day. Now, many films later, after two Academy Award nominations and nine years as a governor, one of my greatest experiences was co-producer of the first ever Oscar Music Concert, just prior to the 86th Oscars. This year on Feb. 28, the Los Angeles Philharmonic performed the Oscar Music Concert at Disney Hall as a result of a new partnership between the academy and the L.A. Phil. I hope that it will continue as an annual event and I take personal pride in being even a small part of the 90-year Oscar legacy.
