The consecration of Lesley Paterson at the Oscars
Lesley Paterson will not add the famous golden Oscar statuette to her cross triathlon world champion trophies. Sunday, the Oscar for best adaptation, a category in which the Scottish screenwriter was nominated for In the west, nothing is newwas awarded to Canadian Sarah Polley (women talking).
The American Ceremony nevertheless ends with a consecration for Lesley Paterson, with four Oscars for In the west, nothing is new (music, foreign film, photo, scenery), the second most awarded film on Sunday, after Everything Everywhere All at onceby Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (seven statuettes), which received the prestigious Oscar for best film. In the west, nothing is new owes a lot to the pugnacity of the Scottish, who took almost fifteen years to bring to the screen the novel by Erich Maria Remarque, of which she had acquired the rights in 2006.
