Nomination Reaction: Brian Oliver

Best Picture, 'Black Swan'

“We have been surprised a little bit by how audiences have really accepted the film but we always believed in it from the start. And from day one, only Fox wanted to do it, and the movie has been proving people wrong who thought it was too dark. … I think we could of easily gotten several more nominations in the acting category, and that’s a real testament to Darren Aronofsky’s work.”
