Watch: Christopher Nolan Accepts Sci-Tech Academy Award of Merit
Since Interstellar doesn't arrive until November this year, director Christopher Nolan isn't up for any Academy Awards for the ceremony coming up on March 2nd. However, that hasn't stopped him from accepting an Oscar this year. This past weekend, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences handed out their Scientific & Technical Awards, which honor those who make the real movie magic possible behind the camera. At the ceremony, Nolan accepted an Academy Award of Merit dedicated to "those who built and operated film laboratories, for over a century of service to the motion picture industry." Watch his speech!
Here's Christopher Nolan's speech from the Scientific & Technical Awards (via The Playlist):
There's no denying Nolan's praise for the people who turn small pieces of film into these spectacular pieces of art that we see on the big screen every year. Even though the film industry is going largely digital, Nolan is a strong supporter of sticking with real celluloid, so much that Paramount's new digital only platform isn't stopping Nolan from having his film Interstellar distributed both in film and digital formats. Good speech?
