William Goldman Attack Martin Scorsese/GANGS OF NEW YORK

gangs-of-new-york-dicaprioLeonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York Oscar Campaign Scandal Pt.1: Miramax/Robert Wise’s Martin Scorsese/GANGS OF NEW YORK Oscar Ad The plot got even thicker when Murray Weissman and others later claimed that Robert Wise himself had approached Miramax after reading another Op-Ed piece, this one — "Crashing the Party for Poor Marty" — published in Variety (Feb. 3, 2003) and penned by two-time Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All the President’s Men).

Two years ago, however, another Oscar vote-soliciting email got an overeager producer in trouble. That was when Nicolas Chartier, one of the four Oscar-nominated producers of the eventual Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker, was penalized by the Academy for sending out e-mails asking Academy members to vote for the Kathryn Bigelow-directed…
