This morning, Intel obsession Julian Schnabel was nominated for Best Director for The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. The film, which New York's David Edelstein called a "masterpiece," was also nominated for achievements in editing and cinematography, but we know that Schnabel will not be entirely placated by this honor — if you're near the in the West Village right now, you can probably hear him stalking around the Palazzo Chupi in his purple pajamas, spittle and crumbs flying into his beard as he rages about how he was supposed to get a Best Picture nod but it's all political and polemical and the Academy is just pissed off because he's having so much fun — but we're proud of him, anyway.
