Wesley Morris      

Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist for the New York Times & Boston Globe; Host of "Still Processing" Podcast

Wesley Morris is an award-winning journalist, critic-at-large for The New York Times and recipient of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism during his time at The Boston Globe.

Prior to joining The New York Times as critic-at-large in 2015, Morris worked at Grantland as a staff writer and the Sportstorialist columnist and co-host of "Do You Like Prince Movies?". He joined The Boston Globe in 2002, where he reviewed films alongside Ty Burr. Morris and Burr also made regular appearances on NECN to discuss the latest films and to do the weekly Take Two film review video series online.

Before joining the Globe, Morris wrote film reviews and essays for the San Francisco Examiner and the San Francisco Chronicle. He is featured in the 2009 documentary film "For the Love of Movies: The Story of American Film Criticism" discussing the impact of video store shopping on the importance of film criticism, and how critic Harry Knowles started a questionable revolution of amateurs writing film criticism.

In 2015, Morris was a finalist for the National Magazine Award for Columns and Commentary, recognized for his 2014 Grantland columns, “Let’s Be Real,” “After Normal,” and “If U Seek Amy.” The following year, Morris and colleague Jenna Wortham began hosting a podcast called "Still Processing," produced by The New York Times and podcasting company Pineapple Street Media.
