The Oscar Guy
Springfield, MO, United States
ABOUT WESLEY LOVELL
Wesley has been writing about the Oscars and film since his website debuted in 1996 on GeoCities. He moved to oscarguy.com and eventually to his current home at cinemasight.com. The Oscar Guy as it was known in the beginning, was one of the first Academy Awards-themed websites and remains the oldest such site on the internet. The Oscar Guy site also debuted the first Academy Awards discussion forum, the Unofficial Academy Awards Discussion Board (UAADB), which is still operating today.
Wesley graduated from Missouri State University with a degree in Communications/Mass Media with an emphasis in film studies. His day job involves working in the insurance industry, but considers film studies, film criticism and Oscar prognostication to be his true profession and passion.
Wesley joined the OFCS in 1997, the organization’s first year in existence. He has served on the OFCS Governing Committee since 2010.
