COM alum Henry Hughes (’06) scored an Oscar nomination for his short film, “Day One,” which follws the story of an Afghan-American woman joins the U.S. military as an interpreter and is sent to Afghanistan. On her first mission, she follows the troops as they hunt down a bomb-maker, and must overcome the gender and culture disparity to help the man’s pregnant wife when she goes into labor.

Hughes was also the 2015 Redstone alumni winner last spring for same film, which was his thesis project at the American Film Institute.
