It’s a nice that “the studio indie divisions are a strong, growing business,” as Hollywood Reporter columnist Anne Thompson writes. “Oscar voters like their movies. The corporate bean counters like their economies of scale and robust global numbers. And it’s a great place to make your mark as an executive because the margin for error is not as unforgiving as it is at the major studios.” It’s a well observed piece, but I don’t really care. Stories about advancement and success aren’t as interesting as ones about failure or disaster. In fact, on some level I’d almost rather not acknowledge, they make me feel a wee bit resentful.
