Nomination reaction: Stuart Blumberg

Best adapted screenplay, 'The Kids Are All Right'

More than anything else, “The Kids Are All Right” was a tale of family neurosis — which is why it has resonated so strongly with auds of all types, according to screenwriter Stuart Blumberg.

“I think we were aiming to show people in all of their neurotic glory,” said Blumberg, who earned an original screenplay nom with director Lisa Cholodenko. “We didn’t want to paint anyone as a hero or villain, but trying to show them in all their pros and cons. We really want to go for the shades of gray instead of straight good and bad guys.”
