NWA at the Oscars

In case you missed it, Oscar Sunday is coming up this weekend (4/25), and an Arkansas filmmaker is in the running for Best Picture.

  • Best Picture: Minari tells the story of a young Korean couple who moved with their family to Arkansas in the 1980s. The film, set in Lincoln, AR, racked up six total nominations including Original Screenplay and Original Score.

  • Quote: "It's an American story. It's an Arkansas story. It's really a universal story. The fact that the filmmaker is from Arkansas, it's very special." said Ashley Edwards with the Bentonville Film Festival.

The Academy Awards will be held this Sunday at 7pm. You can find the full article HERE.
