He may not have the storytelling strength of Steven Spielberg or the cinematic artistry of Terrence Malick. But Judd Apatow is finally getting the kudos he deserves as a fantastic director/screenwriter/everything else.
The Writers Guild of America will be honoring Apatow at their Feb. 19 awards ceremony, with Kristin Wiig presenting the satirical director with his award. While some may consider this an undue honor (everyone just looooves those serious movies), those haters are wackadoos. The Juddster has taken the comedy genre and turned it on it’s head, creating a new brand of funny that appeals to the elitists and frat boys alike.
Mazal tov on the big honor, bro.
