If either Woody Allen or Sony Classics co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard are reading this, please do the right thing and get Midnight in Paris costar Corey Stoll a seat at tomorrow night’s Golden Globes awards. At today’s Spirit Awards luncheon Stoll told N.Y. Times “Carpetbagger” columnist Melena Ryzik that he’s been excluded from the Sony Classics table inside the Beverly Hilton ballroom.
Midnight in Paris costar and Ernest Hemingway inhabitor par excellence at today’s Spirit Awards luncheon at BOA Steakhouse. I interviewed Stoll in Manhattan a little more than three months ago.
Guys…really? Stoll is the standout supporting performer in this, one of the most successful films in the history of Sony Classics and a hallmark in Woody’s career. His Ernest Hemingway is perfect and succinct and beautiful in a way — one of the main reasons for the personal charisma and magnetism in this film. If I had anything to say about it Stoll would be one of the Best Supporting Actor nominees at the Globes and the Oscars. Ryzik, myself and dozens of others have interviewed him and praised his work. This isn’t right….c’mon.
