Today's Useless Trivia! Not one, not two, not three, but FOUR Oscar nominated writers of contemporary cinema share this birthday: Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Pedro Almodóvar (Talk To Her), Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles), and John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator). Only Pedro has won for writing (though Bird is also a multiple Oscar-winner) but it's a neat and weird coincidence, yes?
What's your favorite Almodóvar screenplay (besides Talk To Her that is which rightfully scooped up the Oscar)?
P.S. You guessed it: This year's Oscar Chart Updates for Best Screenplay, Original and Adapted are now available.
