I had the absolute delight of accompanying my best friend, Jessica Martin, to the 5th Annual Indie Series Awards in Hollywood, California. Jessica and I have been friends for pretty much over a decade, and we have seen one another through the best and absolute darkest of times. I guess when you’re the best of friends, that’s what you do!
One of the most exciting celebrations was when Jess found out she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy during this year’s IS5A’s for her work in “Wrecked”. Of course we were both ecstatic when we found out, and I had the pleasure of being her date!
We began the day getting together, hitting the mall for some sweet, sweet churro, and getting our last-minute details. Then, we headed to my house in the valley, and started on hair and make up. Before we knew it, it was time to go!!!!!
During the event, the drumroll rang, and then….they announced….JESSICA MARTIN for Wrecked! Oh my gosh! I was so thrilled, I started screaming, crying, and hyperventilating all at the same time. Jessica didn’t believe they called her, so I grabbed her things, and pushed her out of her chair!
Her acceptance speech was brilliant, and I especially loved the call out she gave to me!!!! Jessica brought up the fact that in the business, so many times you are told, “no.” And this room was full of people who made their own “yes.” I thought that was a great take away. We can create our own yes.
So to a little lady with big dreams, and an award under her belt, you have the most proud best friend by your side. Award or none though, you are still wonderful to me.
