Corman Honored by Oscar as the King of Independent Film

Roger Corman honored for indie film achievement

[Mike’s Comments;] Great to see Corman get the honor he deserves. After all, this man single handedly created indie film as a viable ongoing business, giving birth to some of the great filmmakers and indie films of our time.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has bestowed an Honorary Lifetime Achievement Oscar on Roger Corman, who, at 88, is arguably the single most important force in the history of independent cinema.
