    Good interview. Young Adult is the best script she has written. I am surprised no one talked about the script as a potential Academy Award nominee. It’s original and brave in some ways.

    Is this one the “big get” you referred to earlier, or do you have someone else up your sleeve for the next week? Not a slight to Cody at all, I just have been wondering who that one is.

    Given the fact that almost every big Oscar contender, save THE ARTIST, is an adaptation of some sort, I’d be really surprise if she weren’t nominated in the Original category. And she deserves to win, too, the script is exceptional (actually, in an ideal world, MARGARET would win, but we all know THAT ain’t gonna happen).

  4. Proman says:

    In the off-chance that the big get happens to be Spielberg – please ask him about the status of Interstellar and how he plans to make it happen/work it out.

    All will be forgiven.

    Just saw this tonight. I am now officially a fan of Patton Oswalt.

“I have to interrupt you. No. the answer is no. I’m just a storyteller. Please don’t confuse the character in a story and the storyteller. Of course there is a connection and of course there is a human being that you sense behind the films, but don’t take it one-on-one that Herzog is Aguirre, the mad conquistador or something like that. This attempt has been made and it has failed all the time. Thank God, I’m not the central figure of my films.”

“I am just grateful I am still around. I would love to be Steven Soderbergh, but I am lucky to be Joe Swanberg. Actors want to work with me, people want to give me money, and my nightmare scenario remains: Getting in bed with a studio, spending years on a movie, and it turns out horrible, but now I’m rich.”

Actually, by Hollywood standards, you’re right, I said. That is unambitious.

“It is, and yet, if you can go to bed happy at night, doing what you want, isn’t that ambition for a lifetime?”
