Photo by Connie HuangThe Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has selected a University of Michigan graduate’s undergrad thesis film (Perry Janes’ “Zug”) as one of 15 winners in this year’s Student Academy Awards competition. This is the first time in the history of the Student Academy Awards (which began in 1972) that a film by a U-M student has won.
With three winners in each category (alternative, animation, documentary, narrative, foreign film), the competition culminates with all the winners convening for a week of industry activities in Los Angeles and an awards ceremony (hosted by Bob Saget) on Saturday, June 8, when each filmmaker will learn whether he/she has earned a gold, silver, or bronze medal in his/her category.
Janes, who grew up in different parts of metro Detroit (most recently Royal Oak), based “Zug” on a short story he’d written about two young men who are dared by classmates to visit mysterious Zug Island.

Voting blew up on in the final 48 hours of the final AnnArbor.com Team of the Week poll and good old fashioned comeback was the result.

Both teams and their fan bases weren't even close to finished voting and between them cast 875 votes in two days. The results have the Eagles flying high with 636 (51.9 percent) of the votes, compared to Saline's 437 (35.7 percent).
