The 81st annual Academy Awards ceremony included two prominent film figures who happen to be the subjects of forthcoming books in our Contemporary Film Directors series.

Jerry Lewis received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. Albert Maysles created the video introduction to the documentary film category presented by Bill Maher (who also mentioned Maysles in his remarks).

Both books, by Chris Fujiwara and Joe McElhaney respectively, will be available this fall.
