Nomination reaction: Ryan Kavanaugh

'The Fighter'

“The Fighter” is a movie for the times, offering an uplifting message of triumph over adversity.

“The reason we made this film is — with today’s world filled with (news of the) bad economy — we said we wanted a ‘Rocky’ for our day,” said Relativity Media topper Ryan Kavanaugh. “The best part of this film is that it’s true and so inspiring and I think it fits that mold.”
