Oscar 2008: Reaction to Nomination–Martin McDonah, Scribe of In Bruges

“I was awoken by the news. I'm in New York but a late riser. I'm kind of over the moon about it. I didn't think any film that comes out that early is thought of in these terms. We all liked the script and it's great recognition for all the work.”
— Martin McDonagh, original screenplay, “In Bruges”
