Walter Kirn, author of the novel Up in the Air, which was adapted into an Academy Award nominated film, is PISSED because he didn't get an invite to the Award Show!!
And rightfully so!!
And because Twitter is now apparently the fastest way to bring attention to any issue or concern, Kirn wasted no time blogging his resentment.
"Caution to writers: Don't expect that because you write a novel that becomes an Oscar-nominated film that you'll be invited to the Oscars."
A Paramound rep quickly tried to diffuse the backlash.
"The Academy has a process that we are following and we are respectfully waiting for them to allocate additional tickets. Of course, Walter Kirn is on our wish list for seats, as are producers and executive producers of our film who do not have seats yet."
Psssh. We're sure that's EXACTLY what happened.
Way to go!!!
