INTERVIEWING THE OSCAR WINNERS
I’m not much on post-Oscar pontificating — there are plenty of others who do it much better than me. But, the show did seem awfully low-key this year. I guess the writer’s strike necessitated a slimmed down show overloaded with film clips and tributes. Anyway, I was happy to have interviewed three of the Oscar winners. For Filmmaker I interviewed Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard and the director of the Best Documentary, Alex Gibney. And for the FilmInFocus site I interviewed the winner of the Best Score Oscar for Atonement, Dario Marianelli. Also, here’s Lisa Garibay, who interviewed Best Original Screenplay winner Diablo Cody (Juno) for Filmmaker‘s Fall 2007 issue. And Nick Dawson interviewed Stefan Ruzowitzky, the director of the Best Foreign Film, The Counterfeiters, for his Director’s Interviews.
