The Academy Awards: Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy

Tomorrow night while everybody is going to be watching the red carpet for the Clooneys, Pitts and Jolies. There is one name and face I'll be looking for, my friend Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

I'm proud to say that my friend, someone I admire and respect deeply, has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary for her film "Saving Face." And what's more, Sharmeen is the first Pakistani to ever be nominated for an Oscar - ever - in any category!  No matter what happens tomorrow night, Sharmeen is already the winner. We're all so proud of you! 

Sharmeen's star will only continue to rise, this is definitely a name to watch for. You can learn more about Sharmeen and her Oscar nominated film here:
