“First of all, we chose to name the award ‘Veritas’ for the Latin word for truth– or more correctly for the elusive Roman goddess is known for her beauty and purity,” said LA Press Club President Robert Kovacik, NBCLA Anchor, in describing a new LAPC award handed to the cast and crew of SPOTLIGHT. Kovacik moderated the Inaugural Veritas Award event, Thursday, Feb. 25, 2016, at the Steve Allen Theater, Hollywood. It was a unique peek behind the scenes with characters in the movie and the real Boston Globe writers and editors like Ben Bradlee, Jr., and Michael Rezendes.

SPOTLIGHT was written by Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy, who also directed it. “As journalists, our job is to find the truth following the path to her wherever it may lead and deliver to our readers and audience whatever her form may be– even when she is ugly or painful,” they both said.

“I never thought it (the movie Spotlight) would become a reality,” said Michael Rezendes, senior investigative reporter, Spotlight Team, The Boston Globe. “The producers approached us in 2008 and here we are in 2016, it took a long time to happen.” Rezendes was asked about the image of reporters and if he thought this movie might boost that and call for more investigative writers and reporters? More on the full story here.
