It’s Over

From left it's Jonathan Scheuer, Kate Dean, Debra Granik, and Michael McDonough.

There weren’t any wins for Winter’s Bone tonight – unless you call the four nominations wins. Sounds like a win to me.

    For a small indie film to be nominated for Best Picture . . . that is SO a win, for everyone who worked and put their best selves into the effort. And all of the wins through this year, starting at Sundance, through to the Spirit Awards … who could have dreamed of it?! Proud and happy is what I hope you all are … and as we say (as an ‘adopted Ozarker’ I can say this) here in the Ozarks, “I’m just proud to know ya’!” 🙂

      Thanks, Marcy. We are absolutely proud enough to burst. There’s nothing lost in being among the top 10 films of the year. And I couldn’t have chosen a nicer bunch of people to work with. It was truly a blessing when Dan and Katie brought them into Rick Cochran’s music room where we were playing that night. And this weekend got to do a reunion of sorts, seeing all those movie makers I first met in the same room again, this time getting dressed for the Oscars — Screenwriter Ann Rosellini, Screenwriter and Director Debra Granik, Exec. Producer Jonathan Scheuer and Cinematographer Michael McDonough. I’m certainly proud to know them, and I can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with next.

    The biggest win for me was finding your music.

    • yarnspinnerpress says:

      Why, thank you, Johnathan. There’s more to come. We go into the studio again April 7. Stay tuned.

    We had great fun at the party in West Plains, and cheered and hollared at every snip of WB we saw. I hope you had a good evening – can’t imagine you didn’t – and come home with stories to tell.

      I’ll be starting home Friday, and already have a suitcase of stories packed and ready to go. Now to snag some artichokes and another bag of satsumas. heheheheheh.

  4. You’re a winner too. After all these years the whole world can hear you sing! How good is that??? And hey, who wants a naked gold man on their mantlepiece anyway? All the funny little bits to dust would be such a nuisance… 😉

      Too true, Jeannie. One rumor has it that Bette Davis dubbed it Oscar because when observing the rear view she claimed it resembled her ex-husband’s butt.

    Winter’s Bone gave us all something to feel excited about and get behind. Nothing is about winning, so who cares? We had a great time watching the Oscars together, thinking of you and Dan (and all the other Winter’s Bone people we’ve kind of adopted as our own) and feeling our buttons burst with pride and joy for you and for us and for how fun life can be. Keep havin’ fun, Marideth. We wanna hear all about it!

    • yarnspinnerpress says:

      Never fear, Julie. I won’t be stopping talking about all this for a long time. And there’s more fun ahead. We start another album April 7 (See? I can’t shut up about it.) And then there’s the tour. And a bunch of other stuff I can’t talk about yet. I am truly blessed beyond measure.

    I have never thought the Oscars were the be all and end all…ever. Your movie was astounding. I saw King’s Speech and found it interesting but not gut wrenching. Black Swan was quite powerful and good acting. Winter’s Bone had me totally in its grip…it was substantive and will stick with me from here on out…whenever “out” may be at my age.

    • yarnspinnerpress says:

      What? We’re not gonna live forever? You know, Margaret, until the day I die I will always be looking toward the next fascinating thing to do, to learn, to accomplish, to think deeply about. A passion for life, given a chance, will far outlive our frailties. Hope to cook up some more good stuff very soon. And hope also to come to the southeast sometime this summer or fall. I’ll be in touch.
