I have never been a birthday person. I’m really not an event person. I try to live in the moment and have never been a fan of the singular focus of event moments. I love gatherings of people I like and love (and even people I don’t like much). I love the idea of a festival, where I can dive deep into cinema for days on end, falling in love and hate and meh. I love Oscar because it is the end of a very specific, ever-evolving process.
