TCM Host, Entertainment Journalist, Author Dave Karger Guests On Harvey Brownstone Interviews


Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth Interview with Dave Karger, TCM Host, Entertainment Journalist, Author, “50 Oscar Nights: Iconic Stars and Filmmakers on Their Career-Defining Wins”.

Dave Karger is a highly respected and revered authority in the world of entertainment journalism and film history. He’s an award-winning host and interviewer on Turner Classic Movies. 

He’s also made hundreds of appearances on The Today show, where he’s been the Oscars expert for the past 24 years. He also spent 17 years as a senior writer and Awards Correspondent at Entertainment Weekly, and he’s also co-hosted ABC’s “Live from the Red Carpet” on Oscar night, and he is one of very few people who have had the honor of serving as the Academy’s official red-carpet greeter. 

In 2015, he received the Publicists Guild Press Award for outstanding entertainment journalism. And today he’s here to discuss his wonderful new book entitled, “50 Oscar Nights: Iconic Stars and Filmmakers on Their Career-Defining Wins”, in which dozens of Oscar winners – everyone from Rita Moreno, Steven Spielberg, Elton John, Martin Scorcese, Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood, and many more – actually tell us, in their own words, how they felt about being nominated, how they prepared for the Awards show, how they reacted when they heard their names announced and got up on stage to accept their awards, and how the entire experience impacted their lives and careers. 

Dave Karger’s deep-rooted passion for the art of storytelling and cinema has made him a trailblazer, not only for his innovative work in chronicling the evolution of Hollywood, but because he is actively shaping its narrative and transforming its landscape. He is renowned for his advocacy for diversity and inclusion in the film industry, and he regularly uses his platform to amplify underrepresented voices and challenge industry norms. 

In 2014, he was named one of OUT Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” in the LGBTQ community. 

Harvey Brownstone is a retired judge of the Ontario Court of Justice and was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He is also the bestselling author of “Tug of War: A Judge’s Verdict on Separation, Custody Battles and the Bitter Realities of Family Court” and hosted “Family Matters with Justice Harvey Brownstone,” a television talk show on matters involving the family justice system.

​After a distinguished legal career, Harvey was appointed a judge at the age of 38 in 1995.  He has presided in family and criminal courts.   He has been a trailblazer in several ways.  He was the first openly gay judge in Canada.  He was the first sitting judge in the world to write a national best seller and to host a TV talk show.  

​Harvey has been a role model and icon in the LGBTQ community.  When same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2003, he was the only judge to make himself publicly available to officiate at weddings for lesbian and gay couples travelling to Toronto from all over the world to get married.  In 2007, he officiated at the wedding of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer, the American couple whose marriage triggered the 2013 United States Supreme Court decision overturning the definition of “spouse” in the federal Defense of Marriage Act.  

​In February 2021, Harvey launched his online talk show “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” on his own YouTube channel. He saw this as an interesting hobby.   Within several months, the show attracted hundreds of thousands – and then eventually, millions – of viewers.  Because of the overwhelming success of the show, Harvey decided to retire from the judiciary on December 31, 2021 after having presided as a full-time judge for 26 1/2 years.  Free from the constraints imposed upon judges regarding the expression of opinions and the endorsement of private enterprise, Harvey now happily devotes his full-time attention to hosting “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” as a regular member of the public – albeit one with a rather illustrious and unique career history.
