On Saturday, January 15th, “An Evening with Dr. Jack Kevorkian” at UCLA’s Royce Hall will feature the man himself addressing, among other topics, the fact that his parents survived the Armenian genocide. The event is being presented by the university’s Armenian Students Association and will be moderated by Armenia’s Foreign Minister Raffi Hovannisian.
The following night, at the nearby Beverly Hilton Hotel, the 2010 Golden Globes will determine whether or not Al Pacino has been deemed Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Movie for his portrayal of Kevorkian in HBO’s You Don’t Know Jack. Pacino has a very good chance of winning, with arguably only Edgar Ramirez (Carlos) having a shot at taking away his HFPA hoo-hah. (You Don’t Know Jack is also up for Best Miniseries or TV Movie.)
It’s unlikely Kevorkian will attend the Golden Globes or that Pacino will fly in early to catch the Royce Hall proceedings. But the UCLA event is a heck of a convenient potential DVD Extra, no?
