As film fans tuned into the Academy Awards last night, one North Dakota woman had an even bigger reason to cheer for Best Actor Nominee Jeff Bridges.  Bridges, who took home the Oscar for his lead performance in Crazy Heart, is the son-in-law of Fargo resident, Patricia Hansen – and Hansen proudly cheered as her son-in-law accepted his award.  Bridges has been married to Hansen’s daughter, Susan Geston Bridges, for 33 years.  The Forum has more on this local connection.
