Where’s My Award? How to Get Baby Barf out of a Red Carpet  & Other Tales from a Working Mom in Hollywood is a love letter to working mom’s everywhere from former stand up comedian turned publicist in Hollywood, Margot Black.

From pumping breast milk in the bathroom of a Beverly Hills hotel, persuading her reluctant son to act in a TV pilot, saving a famous sportsman’s dignity at a hotel launch, being summoned on stage at a celebrity auction by one of the most famous lawyer’s in the world to getting baby barf out of a red carpet, Margot’s tales are hilarious, hysterical and heart-felt.

“Margot’s hilarious take on what it’s like to be a busy mom and run a business in Hollywood will appeal to working moms everywhere. I loved Where’s My Award? Heck, I’m calling the Academy right now to find out where my award is—it must have gotten lost in the mail!”

Lisa Ann Walter – Mom-of-four, actress, comedienne, radio talk host

“Everybody will love Margot and appreciate all working moms after reading Where’s My Award?

I’m buying my wife one of those fake Oscars you find on Hollywood Boulevard. She’ll be too busy to notice the difference.”

Ray Romano – actor, comedian, and working dad

“When I tell friends that my secret to a fulfilling life is multitasking and balance, I give full credit to my mother. She was an amazing, dedicated, thoughtful woman, spontaneous without being irresponsible. She accomplished the impossible, and she did it as a working mother. Working moms everywhere deserve an award (especially the ones that work for me). Margot Black’s book is a funny and heartwarming tribute to working moms across the globe.”

Peter Greenberg – CBS TV travel editor and PBS show host

“This book has something for everyone: relatable stories from the front lines of working motherhood, juicy Hollywood gossip and laugh out loud humor. I stayed up till after midnight to finish it.  I loved it!”

Stefanie Wilder-Taylor – Author of 5 books, including Gummi Bears Should Not Be Organic, Host of Parental Discretion, and mother of three

“Margot Black deserves a big, shiny, gold statue for writing this hilarious book!”

Elycia Rubin – entertainment editor at Women’s Health and author of No Biggy!

“Margot has crafted a funny homage to all of us working moms! We might deserve a trophy, but sometimes we have to settle for a massage and the glitter tiara our beloved child made for us in art class.”

Elisabeth Röhm – mom and actress (in that order)

Margot is a lovely person and a hilarious writer, and both things are on full display in Where’s My Award?

Robin Swicord – screenwriter The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Memoirs of a Geisha, Matilda, Jane Austen Book Club, and Mom of Two

“There’s no more irrational human than a two year old.  Oh wait, yes there is: a celebrity.  Working mom Margot Black deals with both of these categories of irrational humans with wit, savvy, and most importantly, love.  Working mothers everywhere will cheer her stories of both red carpet drama and her love for Spiderman, not the one you see on the silver screen, but the one who goes trick-or treating. If there’s ever an award for telling the truth about motherhood, she’ll get my vote.

Cathryn Michon, Writer/Director “Muffin Top: A Love Story”

“I could not stop reading Where’s My Award?  These stories are as entertaining as they come.  Margot Black wears many hats when tending to either her child or her clients. She exhibits patience and boundaries with both, keeps up by perpetually moving and thinking, and somehow found the time to share these moments with us–making us laugh along as she discovers what’s ultimately rewarding.”

Wendy Liebman – Comedian, Wife, Stepmom
