Hidden Figures has won The Los Angeles Press Club’s Veritas Award. Now in its second year, the awards are judged by members of the LA Press Club, based on fidelity of subject matter and artistic excellence.
Written by Allison Schroeder and Theodore Melfi, Hidden Figures takes us back to a time when three African-American women helped shape the space race and has now earned over $100 million at the box office. “It seems fitting our members would choose Hidden Figures for our Vertitas Award. Had it not been for the book and this movie the importance of these women might never have been widely known,” said LA Press Club President Robert Kovacik, Anchor/Reporter of NBC4 Southern California.”
The Veritas Awards takes place on Wednesday February 22 in Los Angeles.
