Oscars 2012: Terrence Malick not there to see cinematography snub
At least director Terrence Malick wasn't in the house for the disappointment. The famously reclusive director didn't attend the ceremony, but for anyone wondering where he was during the telecast, his wife offered a little clue: He's reasonably close to the Hollywood & Highland Center.
"I just talked to him and he's not far away at all," Ecky Malick told The Times as she prepared to enter the theater. She wouldn't say whether the reclusive "Tree of Life" director was watching the show, but it certainly sounded like he was paying attention.
"Tree" is also up for best picture and director Academy Awards.
Would her husband offer any kind of response if he pulled an upset and walked away with the statuette? "Your guess," she deadpanned, "is as good as mine."
