I should say, Before the Door Picture’s Margin Call took home two Indie Spirit Awards, but whatevs. It’s all about ratings. And since BB ZQ is the ‘face’ and (more often than not) the ‘mouthpiece’ of the production company, then this headline is appropriate boo.
As happy as I am for the fantastically sweatered (looks so soft) baby faced ZQ and his locks (which seem shorter, but we’ll talk about that), I am even MORE happy for first time writer/director J.C. Chandor. While he lost out on the Best First Screenplay award (to 50/50′s Will Reiser) he did win the Best First Feature award. Not only did he win that, he won my award for Best Hair Competition. This is more important. Because it looks like he’s giving Quinto’s seemingly shorn locks (did he cut it?! DID HE CUT IT?!) a run for it’s vibrant, full-bodied money. Before the Door needs to get up on that shampoo line, just saying.
Margin Call also took home the prestigious Robert Altman Award because that’s how bad ass it is. Yay team Moosa!
All kidding aside, the movie was very good. Though it made me a tad angry to see all these rich white men (and woman) pretty much plotting to destroy America so that they can stay rich, I loved the writing and the powerhouse cast. Brilliant film. It was apparently a real bitch to make, so it certainly deserves the recognition because the end result is stunning. Next stop: the Academy Awards, where Chandor is nominated for Best Original Screenplay. That shit is tonight. Good luck children!
