This is an important triumph. He is glad this film came to him. He tanked his mother: “don’t go watching people on the screen, go do it yourself” and his wife who supported and inspired him. This movie was never about dying, but about living.

Before any award is given for best drama, I just want to say that among the films nominated in this category, I think the rightful winner should be Rush. But I don’t think it will win.
