It`s the biggest party in the world, and you have to keep the whole thing percolating, which is difficult because a lot of awards most people don`t care about.

I mean, I`ve sold all these scripts and nothing`s been made. Studios have closed, stars have died. I had a director find Jesus. And the pictures just don`t get made.

I write screenplays that don`t get made and pilots that don`t get picked up, and I re-write other people`s movies, and those are all different kinds of fees.
