Past Achievements

Aside from being nominated, or winning, a major award like an Academy or an Emmy or a Grammy, you can show that you are extraordinary through numerous pieces of evidence. These include publications in major newspapers, by or about yourself, or it can include letters from experts in the field talking about you and your achievements.

You can show this also by contracts or standing in the box office and other awards. So now let’s talk about the future.
