Jason joined TheWrap’s Awards team in 2021, concentrating on celebrity profiles, below-the-line and crafts stories and occasional commentary on Awards-related matters.
He has 25 years in the entertainment and media industry covering film, television and stage. He began his editorial career at Premiere magazine, where his now-editor Steve Pond’s legendary Oscar coverage first took shape. After Premiere, Jason has worked at many of the leading magazines and websites nationally in both editing and writing capacities, including Entertainment Weekly (where he wrote for nearly every section of the publication, especially Stage, where he worked as an editor as well), TV Guide Magazine, Vulture, The Village Voice, All-Movie Guide and Slant Magazine, among many others.
He has appeared on various Sirius XM shows as a guest for Entertainment Weekly’s radio channel, served as an awards nominator for various organizations, and covered various film festivals including the Toronto International Film Festival and Poland’s Camerimage, which celebrates the work of the world’s leading cinematographers. He is also an extensive traveler, and has worked as a manager on several high-profile Broadway touring productions, where he has also freelanced simultaneously as a writer over many years.
