Blount’s widower Ray McKinnon, who’s also involved in show business, was not in town, officials said. The couple won the best live-action short film Academy Award in 2002 for their film, The Accountant.

“As one door was seemingly closing in my life, another door opened. And I only have one person to thank for that, my husband Ray McKinnon,” Blount said in her Oscar acceptance speech.
