I figure that most of you had the same dilemma that I had while deciding between the NBA All Star Game and the 2012 Academy Awards to watch on Sunday night.
As you figured, I went with the All Star Game and I guess that director Woody Allen joined me in that same manner.
Allen’s movie, “A Midnight in Paris” was up for best director at the Oscars and instead of attending the awards, Woody decided to stay home and watch the NBA All Star Game instead:
Letty Aronson, producer of Midnight in Paris and Woody Allen‘s sister, said she hadn’t talked to the filmmaker but was “pretty sure” he knew he won for best original screenplay.
“He was saying that the NBA All-Star Game was on at the same time [as the Oscars] so he might have to turn the channel,” Aronson said. “But I bet [wife] Soon Yi told him he won.”
