Feud Between 12 Years a Slave Writer, Director Causes Tension at Oscars
The creative team behind 12 Years a Slave had plenty of reasons to celebrate at Sunday's Oscars, including the film taking home Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong'o, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture. But it wasn't all smiles for director Steve McQueen and writer John Ridley, who are reportedly feuding with each other.
The beef started when McQueen asked Ripley if he could have a shared screenplay credit on the movie, and Ripley refused, according to TheWrap. Ripley raised eyebrows at the Academy Awards on Sunday when he snubbed McQueen on his way to the stage to accept the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and neglected to thank McQueen in his speech.
