He wins tonight for Best Comedy Screenplay

Hot Tub Time Machine and UPenn and Josh Heald

Last year, I did a post about how a Penn writer and Penn producer came together to create a big movie hit.

Tonight that Penn writer wins for his screenplay and he accepts sporting an awesome blue tux.

After the jump reacquaint yourself with the movie and check out a cameo in the film by our Penn alum writer!

As you may recall, Josh Heald (W'00, Editor-in-Chief 34th Street Magazine ('99), Penn Jazz) wrote last year's hit Hot Tub Time Machine.

Tonight he wins for "Best Comedy Screenplay" on VH1's "Comedy Awards" airing tonight at 9/8c. (they filmed the special weeks ago and Josh let me know)

And on a related fun note, if you take a closer look at the movie, you'll note that Josh has a cameo in it as the Pet Shop owner (see screengrab below).    Remember, we have more Penn alumni with film cameos as well!
