So much for a well-placed source. Oops.
Posted on the front page of the NY Times at January 27, 2007, 6:08 pm, over three hours before the winners were announced at the Sundance awards ceremony:
“The Bagger has just heard, from a proverbial well-placed source, that “Grace Is Gone,” by first-time director James Strouse and starring John Cusack, has won the festival’s Grand Jury Prize for a dramatic film.“
“Grace Is Gone” did not win the Grand Jury prize for dramatic film, Christopher Zalla’s “Padre Nuestro” did.
