‘Doubt’ premieres in L.A.

Oscar buzz invades Meryl Streep starrer's bow

HOLLYWOOD — Considering the pedigree of both cast and crew for John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt,” Oscar buzz unsurprisingly loomed large over Miramax’s Tuesday premiere of the film at the Academy.

Preparing for a long awards season, pic’s Viola Davis described the kudos chatter as “more nerve-wracking than exciting. You just want to enjoy the moment and stay grounded.” She added that working with co-star Meryl Streep “raises your game because you know she’s not going to settle for anything less than perfect, so neither can you.”

No stranger to awards, Pulitzer Prize winner Shanley was more concerned with the impact of the film on the audience.

“It’s a story about a time of change and how people deal with change. Each and every person takes something different away from the story,” he said.
