Chris Weitz: Teen Girls Should Vote for the Oscars

March 5, 2010

Anna KendrickIn 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. :)
