Nick Vallelonga, one of Oscar hopeful Green Book's screenwriters and producers, will not attend Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards, or have much of a presence at all on the awards circuit the rest of this season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. 

 

Vallelonga has been under fire since Wednesday following the resurfacing of a 2015 tweet in which he addressed a tweet to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump about a since-debunked conspiracy theory: "100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news."

 

Participant Media, which produced Green Book, released a statement of its own: "We find Mr Vallelonga's Twitter post offensive, dangerous, and antithetical to Participant Media's values. We reject it in no uncertain terms."

Yet they'll probably still award him like they're awarding Bryan Singer.

Seems like there's a lot of controversy growing around this movie, between this and all the accusations of historical inaccuracy. Wouldn't be surprised if it underperforms at the Oscars at this point.

Interesting statement, given how Mahershala Ali is actually a Muslim man ☠️

At this point Golden Globe screenplay winner Green Book won't get a Best Screenplay nomination at the Oscars since this guy would be nominated.
