A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO "ICARUS" FOR WINNING BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE AT THE 90TH ACADEMY AWARDS

Made In Association With Chicago Media Project

Congrats to all CMP members and in particular Ken Pelletier, Lagralane Group, and Ken & Christina Nolan, co-EPs on ICARUS!

In his acceptance speech, Fogel said, “We dedicate this award to Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, our fearless whistleblower who now lives in great danger. We hope Icarus is a wake-up call — yes, about Russia, but more than that, about the importance of telling the truth, now more than ever.”

The Bryan Fogel-Dan Cogan film "Icarus," which helped expose Russia's widespread doping of its athletes, won the Oscar for best documentary on Sunday night. The documentary, distributed by Netflix, began with the premise of Fogel, an amateur cyclist, out to prove how easy it is to beat a drug test. But along the way, he met the then-director of the Moscow anti-doping lab, Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, and stumbled upon one of the biggest scandals in sports history.

Thanks to all CMP members for your support and belief in the power of media to bring about change.
