Three OC Weekly writers were nominated for L.A. Press Club Awards, and none of them came home empty-handed last night.
Gustavo Arellano won the President's Award for "Ask a Mexican."
R. Scott Moxley took first place in "Investigative/Series" for his piece "The New Crips." The judges said "We liked how Moxley laid out the case against this disabled 'activist' while treating him fairly and pointing out that the law is actually on his side. The story serves as much as an expose of the law as it does of the ex-drug dealer in the center of the story. "
And I, Luke Y. Thompson, scored an honorable mention (which is to say "third place") in the category of "Entertainment Reviews/Criticism" for a review of the film Monster House.
