Dear Errol

The only reason I’m posting this is because Errol Morris was okay with doing the same, but I have to say, it’s hilarious:

    Aaaand … Morris wasn’t nominated.

    Say what you like about Harvey, but he knows his audience.

    That’s awesome. “If you continue to be boring, I will hire an actor in New York to pretend he’s Errol Morris”. So good. What a champ.

    That was just beautiful!! :p
    It proves how passionate he is about what he does.

    To be fair to Morris, Guy, The Thin Blue Line was disqualified from the Best Documentary Feature category, and it didn’t really stand a chance of getting a Best Picture or Best Director nomination.

    True. I’d forgotten that.

    After reading that, I had to check the date to make sure it didn’t say April 1.

    To be fair, Harvey may have had a point. As a producer, he’s brilliant. He’s insufferable and pain to be with but he’s a born producer who gets it.

    I just wish he was also an objective kind of guy.

    P.S. The last line is hilarious given everything that came before it.

    One more thing: Harvey could have hired Philip Glass ;) .

    I wish I could get away with communicating like that with people in my life. You can’t help but giggle at that.

    I have a feeling he’s on the verge of sending Christoph Waltz a similar letter. He always looks pissed whenever the camera cuts to him during a Waltz speech.

    I’m beginning to think that’s just the expression Harvey naturally bears. He just kind of snarls.

    I think that warrants a “LOL!”
