Lucy Alibar, "Beasts of the Southern Wild" screenwriter (Best Adapted Screenplay)
"I couldn't even believe it [when [Benh Zeitlin's name was called for Best Director]. I was just in this little ball on the floor. And that Mazie [Quvenzhané Wallis] got nominated. I think the Best Picture means the most because it's really all of us. Just so many helping hands went into making this movie, so it really is a reflection on all of us. My mom called me and the first thing she said was, 'Maybe now you'll get to meet Tony Kushner!' To see your name with those other names is a little surreal. I've met a lot of the writers and they're incredibly sweet people. It's huge just to be in the company of them."
