Huge congrats to Lori Kay Allred for her contributions to Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman.” This film was partially filmed in Colorado where it takes place. Allred served as Production Manager and scout. Before a scheduling conflict with another shoot, she was potentially going to walk the August red carpet premiere in LA. This spring, the film won the Grand Prize of the Jury from the Cannes Film Festival.

Speaking of carpets, kudos to Scott Takeda for the September premiere of Hulu’s The First.Takeda recurs as a guest star in this series by Beau Willimon (“House of Cards”). The show follows the lives of the people working on the first manned mission to Mars and stars Sean Penn, Natascha McElhone, Lisa Gay Hamilton, Hannah Ware, and Keiko Agena.

And quick kudos to Mike Ostroski (cast member of “Remembering Us”) for booking a costarring role on ABC’s “The Rookie.” His cast mate Nev Scharrel booked a recurring role on FOX’s “9-1-1.” And cast mate Denielle Fisher Johnson booked a nice costar role on the Emmy nominated “Better Call Saul” on AMC.
