In an amusing new interview with People, The Twilight Saga: New Moon director Chris Weitz jokes that New Moon could’ve been a major Oscar contender if only teen girls were allowed to vote:
“If only the Academy were composed of teenage girls, I might be looking at a Best Picture nom,” he joked. “It’s a scandal that there are not more teenage girls in the Academy.”
He also mentioned that — being a member of the Academy himself — he voted for Anna Kendrick in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Up in the Air:
“I voted for her of course, because she’s my homie,” says Weitz.
Actually, I think there’s a rule about Academy members not revealing who they voted for. I hope he doesn’t get in trouble.00Post a Comment
