RIP Demian Bona

Longtime Oscar-watcher and chronicler Damien Bona, co-author (with Mason Wiley) of Inside Oscar and sole author of Inside Oscar 2, has died of a heart attack at age 57. His passing was announced by Awards Daily‘s Sasha Stone a little while ago. Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

    This sucks. His first volume was one of the best things about skipping 5th period, giving up, and just ending up in the library. Probably one of the biggest influences on my Oscar fascination. RIP.

    Whatever my headstone’s gonna say, please don’t let it be LONG TIME OSCAR WATCHER.

    His book is awesome because it doesn’t just tell you who won, it tells you why. It puts the movies into the contexts of their year and reminds you how people felt about it at the time.

    I’ve been hoping for years they would put out a Vol. 3. Wells, any idea if they were working on one?

    He didn’t look a day over 75.
