Former LA Times staffer Scott Feinberg has just been picked up by The Hollywood Reporter to front the trade’s awards season coverage. Feinberg will be THR‘s awards season blogger and analyst–a job he’s quite familiar with. Feinberg was the author of “The Feinberg Files” blog on the Times‘ “The Envelope” award season website. He left in 2009 to run his own site ScottFeinberg.com. He’ll now report to THR.com editor Joseph Kapsch.
Feinberg is the second former “Envelope” blogger to join THR in as many weeks. THR poached Patrick Day away from the Times just last week. Both bloggers arrive in the midst of a complete revamping of the trade’s awards blog “The Race.” THR promises a re-launch of the blog in the coming weeks.
