Sasha Stone


Sasha Stone founded the site in 1999 with a modem, a computer, and a one year-old baby. The site was changed to in 2006 after the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences sued Stone. She graduated from the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television and attended Columbia University Graduate Film School briefly before dropping out and returning to Los Angeles.

In 2021, Stone’s short film The Summer of the Shark aired on the Netflix series Voir, directed by David Prior and produced by David Fincher.

In 2020, Stone launched a Substack column called Free Thinking to escape what had become a climate of fear around saying what we all really think.

A podcast memoir called GoldTripping covering Stone’s journey as an Oscar blogger that has covered 2000-2013 so far. It is ongoing.

Stone currently lives in California somewhere with two beloved doggies.
