Oscar Feud!

2013 Toronto International Film FestivalA big congratulations to Steve McQueen, the director of 12 Years a Slave which won best picture at last weekend’s Academy Awards and John Ridley who won the Oscar for adapting the screenplay. It’s a great film and I was happy to see it win, but it seems these two may not have been happy to see each other win. Ridley didn’t thank McQueen in his speech and McQueen did a sarcastic clap when Ridley won. I guess the 2 are feuding over the writing credit for the film. Too bad. I photographed them both for different projects in the past and realized I had them in the same pose. I hope both winning a gold statue will help put it to rest.
