Harvey Dishes On Life, Work and Oscars! By Scott Feinberg

Scott Feinberg, a contributor to this site, has just posted an exclusive interview with Harvey Weinstein that may be the most revealing that the movie mogul has ever given.

Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, spoke to Feinberg from London, which he was visiting for several days leading up to the BAFTA Awards. His top horse in this year’s awards race, Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” was not nominated for best picture by the Brits but was by the Academy, and is rumored to be gaining serious momentum in its quest to upset heavy favorites “The Hurt Locker” and “Avatar.”

As you can see by checking out the full interview, Weinstein opens up about his childhood aspirations, his climb from concert promoter to studio chief, his past Oscar glory days, and how he thinks “Inglourious” will end up the winner of the top prize on March 7. A brief snippet…

“Well, I think it’s fairly simple. I mean, if you do the Oscar math, the movie is supported by the actors, it won the Screen Actors Guild against ‘The Hurt Locker’ and a bunch of other good movies. And I think that, you know, everybody in the world is gonna pick Kathryn Bigelow for best director, Quentin’s already announced he is, so I think that she wins that. And I think that there’s room for this movie to win best picture. I think the actors will lead the charge. And I think that, you know, as people re-look at the movie. There were 450 members of the Academy on Tuesday who watched the movie again, you know, the movie’s out on video, but they went to the theater and saw it again. So I think that kind of buzz and the excitement it’s generating is making people take a second-look at all the movies. And, you know, that screenplay, and those actors, and that panorama of movies ? you know, it’s just glorious, not to make a pun. I just think it’s one of those great upsets in the making. And it’s gonna happen.”
