Biscuits & Gravy took home the award for Best Film at last night's 48-Hour Film Project's Best of L.A. screening. Woo hoo! Two years in a row! After the awards ceremony, the leader of another team (whose films I'm not crazy about -- they're always very slick, and often are filmed on rented professional sets, which is supposed to be against the rules) came up to Sean, shook his hand, and congratulated him. "But could you take next year off?" he begged. "If you took a year off, we might have a shot at winning." There were more films in competition this year than ever before, and I thought the overall caliber of the entries was very high, so winning this year is a real coup for Sean and Curtis. After the screening, all the participants were invited to an after party at a fancy-sounding place called Tart -- but I ducked out with a smaller group and went to Canter's Deli, where I chowed down on potato pancakes and kosher dills.
Biscuits & Gravy also won the award for Best Costumes.
