Lose One, Won One!

I just won My first award as and adult in the media field. I was nominated for two awards! A first for me! It was for my former show Breaking Into with James Lott Jr on Black Hollywood Live. the judges after two rounds nominated me for Best Host and Best News Entertainment Show Recorded or Live! I was estatic! I ended the show earlier this year after 4 great years on the air!
What made it even more special was it was for a new and exciting and inclusive to people of color award show , the Capital City Web Awards!
They were held at the Arc Theatre in Washington DC. I didn’t think I was going to win but that didn’t matter, I wanted to be a part of this historic occasion! Also they asked me to co present the Lead Actress category!
After a hard travel experience of almost not making it, I was there! The best host category was the first of the night. It was a trip hearing my name! I lost. I got to feel what that was like. I wasn’t upset, it went to great people. I wasn’t surprised. It was all good. I was able to relax.
Six awards later my other catergory was up. I assumed the winner would be the show of the host winners. My bow tie was hanging off me, I was relaxed in my seat .
Then they said “The award goes to …Breaking Into with James Lott Jr”
I was shocked to say the least! And apparently my speech was the hit of the night! It came from my heart!!
Thank you Anthony Anderson and crew for making a dream realized for me after 12 years in the biz and at age 50!
So now I have the full experience of an awards show!!

NEW Things Are Happening at JLJ Media

As you have probably noticed, I have been posting here regularly again! I am just about back to my old self (with New twists) and I am ready to take on the world. During my time off I have reflected and started editing my professional life.I have some exciting changes coming up! Here are a few of them:

I have a new EP coming out May 1st with the dance group Chog. It’s called The Seven Song EP. Right now you can listen to it for free on my soundcloud page. Our first collab together, The Five Song EP, is one of my most successful music projects ever! I was happy to return and work with them! It will be released on all music platforms.

Speaking of Music, one of my songs from my album Speaking With Strings will be featured in the Amazon series Asunder. I am so honored by this. I never dreamed how far my music could take me. Stay tuned for details and which episode!

And I am working on two new music projects, one for a podcast/Web show and my regular album that is a follow up to my first, Songs From my Inside Voice. I am also writing songs for a possible Spanish language album.

I have newer books out and one of them is flying off the shelves, Being A Heartie. I talk about the trails of off camera of the show When Calls The Heart, behind the scenes of the aftershow I do, the love the Hearties have show me through difficult times and some fun stuff. Get it on Amazon kindle or paperback! I have a slew of new books coming out this year! The Really Short Story Project is in full effect!

The Second half of The Really Quick James Lott Jr Show is returning! I have filmed enough material for about 4 episodes. So stay tuned for that! Sorry for the delays. Goto my YouTube channel to watch the first half of this Season Two!

I am really building my Super Organizer University and my speaking engagments. I am still doing the soap podcasts and A Lott of Help and In Between The Pages with James Lott Jr podcasts..

All good things must come to an end. May 13th, after 4 seasons, The last Breaking Into on Black Hollywood Live will be airing! It will be my big 50th Birthday show and we will talk about age! I am bringing back former guests and I will probably cry the whole episode! I will write more about my feelings later. I am honored to have done that show!

I am taking the Extra Connections show and makng it bigger! After several years just as a podcast, I just signed a deal to bring it to radio and YouTube! Monday May 20th at 7pmPST is the debut of the new incarnation of the show! it will be live!! I will continue to have amazing guests and topics. It’s at a new studio here in my town of Inglewood, called The Afterparty.com I am very excited!!
