Good friend to Cinetic and CRM, Nicolas Chartier, has won his fair right to be included as one of the nominated producers for The Hurt Locker. Nicolas is primarily a sales agent, and The Hurt Locker is one of his only excursions into the world of producing. He bet the farm (literally) on the prospects of the film becoming a success, and he deserved the ability to be nominated for an Academy Award along with the three other producers. The issue at hand stems from the Academy’s recent guideline that stipulates only three people can be included in the Best Picture nomination. Nicolas would have likely been the odd man out, had the three-person rule stuck to The Hurt Locker.
