I have to say that I was extremely pleased that Lost in Translation won Best Screenplay, Best Picture (Comedy) and Best Actor (Bill Murry/Comedy) last night. Bill Murray is just so cool and is looking even more distinguished these days with his white beard (for Wes Anderson’s new movie). He’s just so funny and deserves the Academy Award this year for that movie.
I do have to say, Sofia Coppola (who is currently divorcing my other favorite Director, Spike Jonze) was very nervous on stage accepting her awards. She definitely is a writer — you know how un-social we all can be. But she was just like a deer in the headlights.
Either way, though — I was glad for them.
