The Sundance Film Festival gave "Like Crazy" Best Picture for a love story between Jacob and Anna. A story that starts with a hand written letter as distance comes between them with Anna's passport sending her back to the UK and banned from coming back to the United States.
This is no comedy and we have a feeling this will not have that happy go lucky happy ending in most movies today, I look forward to seeing it.
They seem likeable enough and anyone who writed hand-written letters in this day and age is cool in my book.
Check out the preview for "Like Crazy" and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
Diagnosis: Distance Is Only The Issue If You Want It To Be....
A Hurt Locker producer will not be allowed to attend the Academy Awards this Sunday. His crime? He was sending e-mails out to Academy voters telling them to vote for his movie for Best Picture. That is a big no-no.
The producer is Nicolas Chartier and IF the Hurt Locker does win for Best Picture, he will be able to get his award at a later date.
An executive meeting was called about this situation on Monday to barr him. He sent out the e-mail around Feb. 19th urging people to vote for his movie instead of a movie with a budget of $500 million, an obvious reference to it's competition for Best Picture, "Avatar" by James Cameron.
My naivete, ignorance of the rules and plain stupidity as a first-time nominee is not an excuse for this behavior and I strongly regret it," Chartier wrote.
The other producers will be able to attend the movie. The Los Angeles Times broke the story on the e-mail and published it.
