While Lady Gaga was again the center of attention at the 61st Grammy Awards, some may have missed seeing a little golden gramophone was awarded to a former Wollongong lad.
Alan Hicks, alumni of Wollongong High School, directed the documentary Quincy which was awarded Best Music Film at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Hicks was awarded along with co-director Rashida Jones and producer Paula DuPre Pesmen, who all took to the stage to accept the trophy.
The film surrounds the life and accomplishments of American record producer, singer and film producer, Quincy Jones.
The other films nominated were Life In 12 Bars, Whitney, Itzhak and The King.
After finishing high school, Hicks accepted a full scholarship to study music and jazz at the William Paterson University in New Jersey, according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb).
Previously, Hicks directed the film Keep On Keepin’ On and worked on The Transparentsea Voyage.
