Awww...A Posthumous Honor for "Tinker Tailor" Writer, Bridget O'Connor! What Her Husband Say About Their Nomination! 


Here is Peter Straughan talking about their nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." His wife, fellow nominee Bridget O'Connor, died of cancer in 2010 but adapted majority of the film.

“I'm stunned and thrilled to hear about the nomination. I wish more than anything in the world that my wife Bridget O'Connor - who did the lion's share of the adaptation - could be here to enjoy this moment. She would be so happy and so proud. I'm going to go and meet my daughter now and tell her how clever her mother was!”
-Peter Straughan, Best Adapted Screenplay, TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY
