Earlier this week, we were happy to learn that Big Fish got five Broadcast Film Critics Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director (Tim Burton), Best Writer (John), Best Song (Pearl Jam’s “Man of the Hour”) and Best Score (Danny Elfman). Although I never believe it when I hear other people say it, it’s an honor just to be nominated.
It’s a little odd that the category I’m in is called “Best Writer.” Usually, the writing awards are called “Best Screenplay.” But I guess since they give the award to a person, not a movie, it does sort of make sense.
Who knows if we’ll win any awards. One good thing is that we’ll know soon: The awards are going to be held January 10, 2004 in Beverly Hills, and broadcast live on E!. (Do you have to put a period on a sentence that ends with E!? I’ll be sure to ask.)
