David Magee, "Life of Pi" screenwriter (Best Adapted Screenplay)
"I tried not to think about it too much last night and focus on other things because if I think about that kind of thing too much, it becomes this dark, obsessive thing. I was still on New York time -- I just flew in to Los Angeles yesterday -- so I was up in plenty of time to see it on TV. My wife and kids were on Skype with me, so we watched it together, which was a lot of fun, but I started to wonder, 'What if Dad got you on the phone to see me miss?' So I'm glad it didn't have to be the saddest Skype call ever. And I'm really glad that everyone got nominated. The stuff that they've done with the technical and visual side of things is amazing. I don't think even [director] Ang [Lee] could have known how amazingly they could have realized that."
