The Whaling City is basking in Oscar glory this morning after "Whiplash", a film featuring New Bedford's own Nate Lang, scored three Academy Award wins.

The film, directed by Damien Chazelle, won for Sound Mixing, Film Editing, and Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons.

Following his win, Simmons gave a very emotional acceptance speech.

"Whiplash" is currently screening at Flagship Cinemas in New Bedford.
