Personal Quote:

[on his first Oscar nomination for Nebraska (2013)] It's quite a thrilling ride. I didn't really expect it. I knew - because of the black and white - that we had found a lot of fans. I had people like Haskell Wexler calling me. The talk was positive and I'm happy so many people responded to it, especially for a small film like that and with a modest budget. See more »
