Oscar 2008: Reaction to Nomination–Graham, Editor of Milk

“It's pretty extraordinary. I don't quite know what to say. It was a story that needed to be told and it was told at the right time. This was my first film with Gus (Van Sant). I sort of stalked him to get the job and he screwed up and hired me. He was always willing to try anything new and narratively different.”
— Elliot Graham, film editor, “Milk”
