Success has many ways of coming to you. Sometimes it comes right away, and then the film’s instantly forgotten. Sometimes you can’t remember what won the Academy Award for best picture, and then you can remember the one that didn’t. And then sometimes in the afterlife, films that were not successful at all become these giant successes.
What an honor that Stephen Prouty got nominated for best makeup and hairstyling for Jackass Presents Bad Grandpa. Am I as stunned as everyone else we didn’t get the nod for best picture? Well of course, duh, but I won’t let that take away from my happiness for Steve, Tony Gardner, and our whole makeup team. Wahoo!
You can also see sometimes that the best pictures are the ones where you didn’t try so hard, where you were just enjoying the process – and you didn’t even know why you were making the picture.

Then more details are required and one paints a second portrait, and a third – before long the best lines cancel out – and the secret is exposed at last; the planes of the pictures have intermingled and given us away, and though we paint and paint we can no longer sell a picture. We must be satisfied with hoping that such fatuous accounts of ourselves as we make to our wives and children and business associates are accepted as true
I’m very surprised at Carol didn’t get a best picture. Todd Haynes is an Academy darling, his period pieces are nothing short of brilliant, and they hold up. And I definitely feel like Carol speaks to, even though it’s set in the past, it speaks to themes we’re dealing with in life right now. It’s really really shocking that it didn’t get it.
