Lisa Cholodenko and Stuart Blumberg
Lisa Cholodenko, the writer and director of The Kids Are All Right and her writing partner Stuart Blumberg are nominated for Best Screenplay. Their script is somewhat reflective of their own lives. Cholodenko and her partner have a son, who was born through artificial insemination, and Blumberg was a sperm donor in college. Focus Features released his response this morning: “Try as I could to act cool and not care, as soon as I heard our names called, I started crying like a little kid. Pardon the cliché, but this truly is a dream come true," Blumberg said.
