Winning an Oscar for writing is bad for your health

Posted by Phil On October - 28 - 2012


Dr Raj Persuad at the London Screenwriters Festival in a talk entitled ‘Writers are Mad’ gave the disturbing statistic that writers who win an Oscar on average live four years less than writers who were only nominated… But that actors that win live four years longer than those who were only nominated. Maybe I should take up acting?.. Or make sure I don’t get nominated for a writing Oscar. That should be easy.. First off… Write a bad script. .. I can do that!.:-)
