Amy Ryan, Tony Gilroy and the object of my virtual affection, Viggo Mortenson are unequivocal in their support of striking writers and will not cross a picket line.
"That's a no-brainer. Actors need writers. You know scripts don't write themselves. I'm here because this part is so well-written." — Supporting actress nominee Amy Ryan, on why she won't attend the ceremony if writers are still on strike.
"I would never cross a picket line ever. I couldn't. I'm a 20-year member of the Writers Guild. I think whatever they work out is going to be one way or the other but, no, I could never cross a picket line. I think there's a lot of people who feel that way." — Tony Gilroy, nominated for best director for "Michael Clayton."
"No, if there's a strike I will not go but I have a feeling they'll solve it. I hope they do. I'm sure my mom would like to see me on TV and so forth, but if there's a strike I'm not crossing the line." —, nominated for best actor for "Eastern Promises."
