Dear Mr. Lenhart: Until a week ago, I would not have been able to answer your question off the top of my head and it is a bit off the main focus of my article–ie, Oscar nominees. However, Tom Sherak was profiled last week by the Philly Jewish Exponent. He is Jewish. Also, for the record, I omitted one nominee by accident. He wasn’t connected to a best picture nominee–Grant Heslov, who is Jewish, was co-nominated for writing “The Ides of March”. He is a long time business/artistic partner of George Clooney.
