Best Director: Woody Allen
Published February 9, 2012
ABOVE: WOODY ALLEN IN THE MID-SIXTIES.
Among the Best Director hopefuls is Woody Allen, nominated for Midnight in Paris. This is Allen’s seventh Best Director nomination (he’s actually only won once—for Annie Hall in 1978), but it’s his first following his infamous 2000s slump. We asked Allen how he came up with film ideas (the man is quite prolific) when we interview him for our September 2008 issue and here’s what he had to say on the subject:
“I don’t keep a notebook, but I do jot. I have a drawer full of matchbook covers and napkins and little notes. And some of them seem sensational when I’m jotting them down and then later I can’t imagine what was so exciting about them. And then others actually hold up and become films”
