Oscar winner speaks out against Academy for rescinding faith-based film's nomination
Oscar winner Gerald Molen spoke out against the Oscars for rescinding the nomination of “Alone Yet Not Alone,” a faith-based film, from the original song category, The Hollywood Reporter said. Molen, a producer who won an Oscar for "Schindler’s List," felt the decision by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had nothing to do with Bruce Broughton’s improper lobbying, which the Academy cited as a reason for rescinding the nomination.
"Every film, director, writer, cinematographer, actor, art director, costume designer and efx house finds a way to pitch or promote their work. Many will see this decision as faith-based bigotry pure and simple," Molen said in the letter.
