Oscar nominations: Harvey Weinstein's not relaxing yet

January 25, 2011 | 11:16 am

Harvey Weinstein is certainly sitting pretty with his 12 Oscar nominations for "The King's Speech." But that doesn't mean he's sitting out the rest of the season.

What does he think of the horse race now? “I have no idea.”

Is there still work ahead of him? Most certainly. “I do not believe that of the 6,000-plus Oscar members that everybody saw the movie. We have to get them all to see the movie.”

And why is this film doing so well with both moviegoers and Oscar voters?

“It’s a simple thing. The reason the movie got that many nominations is a tribute to this cast. Our actors are our special effects on this movie.”
