Earlier on Tuesday, "Silver Linings Playbook" -- the shockingly sweet (at least for a David O. Russell directed film) comedy-drama starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper -- was nominated for five Independent Spirit Awards, including a Best Director nod for David O. Russell. We spoke to Russell shortly after the nominations were announced for his reaction and to have a (much) longer discussion about his Oscar contender of a film (the full interview will publish on Wednesday). Also of note: Last night at the Gotham Awards, he and Matt Damon exchanged public declarations about their individual interest in working with each other, with Damon joking, "You're like a wolf, and I'm like Sarah Palin in a helicopter." Apparently that conversation continued after the ceremony.
Congratulations on your five Independent Spirit Award nominations.
