Blind Item #20 - Oscars

This long time collaborator with the disgraced director was a winner/nominee last night and doesn't believe the director did anything wrong.

Does Ottoman edit Singer's private films too?

Ottoman. his victory is a joke .

Granted Singer wasn't running a Neverland Ranch but what was this collaborator's logic?

filmfanb said...

Wasnt there a blind that Singer was in the editing room the entire time and practically edited it!?!?

No one cares about this and they still rewarded him. Oh well. Hollywood isn't and shouldn't be the moral compass for society.

John Ottman, not John Ottoman. Composed some scores for Singer too.

Singer did a lot of the editing with Ottman. Hollywood just loves to reward this behavior. BoRap was an Ok movie, i don't get all the hype. Also sound editing? come the fuck on!

Syncing all that lip syncing must have been a difficult job after all.

Actually, it was totally Bryan Singer's right to be there to supervise the editing, just like any other director, due to a DGA ruling that applies to every major production. Which doesn't mean that he did the editing. The editor did.

"If you direct at least 90% of scheduled principal photography, you are entitled to all post-production creative rights, unless you were primarily responsible for the motion picture going over budget or your replacement directs more than 10% of all principal photography, no part of which was shot to defeat your rights."

Singer left the set after 90% of the photography was in the can, so Fox had no option. The ruling was written to protect directors who get sick during production, not Singer, but he took advantage of it. Fox just tried to keep his involvement as secret as possible.

BR winning for film editing is an absolute joke. There's a tweet going around showing a clip of the film where the camera cuts from person to person 52 times in less than 2 minutes. It's like being on a Tilt-A-Whirl. Absolutely no focus. Further proof that Oscars are meaningless

Ottman directed Urban Legend 2. I know, I worked with him on it.
