"This year I actually got up and watched it on TV, which I've not done yet because I'm usually writing the night before, and I was editing last night and left at 1 instead of 4. I had -- which has become a tradition -- a phone call with Charlie Collier, the head of the network, who was over the moon. And then it was rounds of texting with all the actors and cinematographers. And my wife woke up for it too, because in the past I'd chastised her that this doesn't happen all the time!"
