And the Oscar goes to…a North Texas engineer!.

You’ll find it inside Larry Hornbeck’s rolling suitcase, wrapped in old pillowcases.

“There it is!” he says, pulling out an Oscar, the shiny statuette that represents Hollywood’s ultimate happy ending.

“I think certainly, as an engineer, I am not going to derive that kind of benefit,” he said modestly.
