Update: I still say an enterprising L.A. journalist needs to hang with Oscar-shunned Hurt Locker producer Nicholas Chartier on Oscar night, even though the particulars were revealed last night by Nikki Finke. Chartier and his family will be “guests of honor at a Venice viewing party that is being put together by WME Global chief Graham Taylor and Blue Valentine producer Lynnette Howell.” A filmmaker friend confides that “if the Academy allows it I may give [Chartier] my tickets.” Except that would kinda kill the Venice party thing.
