Annie Proulx Takes Aim At The Academy

annie proulx

We just love Annie Proulx. And not only because she was responsible for giving birth to two characters, Ennis del Mar and Jack Twist, who we have fully embraced over the last few months on the silver screen. With Brokeback Mountain, The Shipping News, and a slew of other beautifuyl created stories, she’s proven to the world how wonderful she is at her craft.

Now she proves that she’s just as bitter about Brokeback’s Oscar snub last week. And she’s so endearingly catty about it, that we love her even more than we did just last night.

Rumour has it that Lions Gate inundated the academy voters with DVD copies of Trash – excuse me – Crash a few weeks before the ballot deadline. Next year we can look to the awards for controversial themes on the punishment of adulterers with a branding iron in the shape of the letter A, runaway slaves, and the debate over free silver.

Give ’em hell, Annie!
