Academy Awards 2022

Our 20th Annual Academy Awards was held on June 1, 2022. The festivities began with a gala reception in the Dining Commons, complete with a Fashion Show courtesy of Mrs. Lee’s Fashion Design class. Then Marlie Kass and Zakkai Mares-Van Praag hosted the Awards in the theatre to help us celebrate Brimmer’s year in the arts—live and in-person—for the first time in 3 years! Prizes were awarded, the US Band played, Honorary Academies were presented, and Lily Kaplan ’12 was inducted into the Creative Arts Hall of Fame.
