Nomination Reaction: Darren Aronofsky

Best director, 'Black Swan'

Darren Aronofsky is gratified that auds and awards voters have grasped — and gasped at — his intent with “Black Swan,” which raked in five bids including best pic and directing.

“When you do a passion piece and it connects with people it’s just a thrill and getting the nomination is just as thrilling,” he said. “There are so many great scenes that resonate in the film but my personal favorite was what I labeled ‘the Night of Terror’ when everything goes bonkers and her legs break backwards. I always love the reaction that scene gets — some people laugh, some shout, some even cry. That particular scene really embodies the type of thrills I was going for in this movie.”
