New Girl Crush: Academy Award Winner Audrey Marrs

February 28th, 2011 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

'Inside Job' director Charles Ferguson and producer Audrey Marrs

10 reasons to love Inside Job producer and Academy Award winner Audrey Marrs:

  1. The first documentary she ever produced, No End in Sight, was nominated for an Academy Award.
  2. The second documentary she ever produced, Inside Job, won an Academy Award last night.
  3. Before she was a documentary producer, she was an art curator.
  4. Before she was a curator, she was a riot grrrl who played in Mocket and later Bratmobile.
  5. When I went to school, in Olympia-a-a-a-a: Even those hideous alt-girl micro-bangs can't ruin this pretty picture

  6. Marrs is of Japanese descent.
  7. Marrs’ mother, Mariko, a native of Japan, did the set decoration on Inside Job. Check out her dope website here and weep because you were born to the wrong family.
  8. Marrs’ sister, Leona, is also a musician who played with the punk band Pretty Girls Make Graves.
  9. Marrs looked really hot last night and stood out among all the awards show drones who had to hire armies of people to look half as good.
  10. She kinda looks hot all the time–note how she rocks the LBD–and we can’t even hate her for it. (Well, okay, maybe a little.)
  11. Besides being hot, Marrs–Pacific Northwest denizen, riot grrrl, political documentary filmmaker, Oscar winner–is cool as fuck. We can’t decide if we wanna make out with her or be her BFF. Maybe both, in that order.

    After seeing her on the Oscars, I was certain that Disgrasian would have something up on her and y’all totally did not disappoint. :) And she also is as painfully cool as I thought she’d be.
