Winner: Woody Allen's latest comeback
"Midnight in Paris" marks the seventh film for which Woody Allen has received both writing and directing Oscar nominations, but the first time he pulled that double since "Bullets Over Broadway" in 1995. This is also Allen's first Best Picture nominee since "Bullets Over Broadway." Add in the mammoth box office take for "Midnight in Paris" and this is Woody Allen's biggest comeback since, well, "Match Point" a couple years ago. Allen hasn't won an Oscar since "Hannah and Her Sisters," so he may even be due.
