COM alum Henry Hughes (’06) scored an Oscar nomination for his short film, “Day One,” which follows the story of an Afghan-American woman who 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 cultural disparities to help a 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.
