Will is a Blackstone LaunchPad Global Media Fellow and founder of his own LaunchPad venture, WD40 Productions, as well as a filmmaker, actor, theater director, stand-up comic and all around creative talent. On behalf of the Academy, we are pleased to award our first Oscar to Will for the award show in the following combined categories:  screenwriting, producing, directing, cinematography, sound, set design and art direction, wardrobe, editing, and any other category we missed.  Will did an awesome job making the pivot to a virtual ceremony so fun.
