’12 Years a Slave’ screenwiter says McQueen omission not a snub

John Ridley and Steve McQueen

12 years a Slave screenwriter John Ridley, right, exclusively tells Page Six that omitting the name of director Steve McQueen during his acceptance speech wasn’t intentional.

From NY Post’s Page Six:

“Listen, without Steve McQueen I wouldn’t have this Oscar tonight,” Ridley said at Vanity Fair’s party after winning for Best Adapted Screenplay. “I owe a lot to the genius of Steve McQueen, and I am forever grateful to have had the chance to work with him.”

Asked if omitting McQueen’s name onstage was intentional, Ridley told us, “Of course not. I had less than two minutes to thank everybody, and I was so caught up in the emotion of the moment when I was onstage.”

Ridley sparked speculation when he failed to mention McQueen, and Hollywood blogs reported on a disagreement over the screenplay’s credit.

Rumors of a rift burbled at London’s BAFTAs last month, where, sources told us, McQueen exploded at Ridley at a party.

But sources close to McQueen said it was a misunderstanding between McQueen and Ridley’s wife — that when the director arrived to a private dinner at the Edition Hotel and noticed some friends weren’t there, he exclaimed, “Where the f?-?-?k is everyone? No one is here!”

“Ridley’s wife thought Steve was talking to her, she was upset,” said a source, adding McQueen later called to apologize.

McQueen has struggled to contain rumors that he is gay.

    I have to log in right quick……… When Ridley’s name was called, I noticed right away that no one attached to this movie reacted with any joy or even clapped. Ridley walked right past McQueen and neither acknowledge the other. I knew right then that something was not right. I definitely believe they are beefing over screenplay credits!! :coffee: —–>> :kona:

    You know she did.

    Anywho, they clearly have beef, but who cares. They both got Oscars and will go on to have extraordinary carreers. Maybe Steve will get over not getting screen writer credit on some Beyonce type he wrote one word mess. If not, who cares? Everyone doesn’t like everyone.

    ================
    :nono: I haven’t celebrated a month anniversary since middle school. Heck, we barely do it now. Maybe it will be a bigger deal if we get married.

    I think Draya had to grow up rather quickly since she had a child at an early age. I think she’s developmentally delayed.

    You are absolutely right! I always say that if things don’t work out with Honey Dip and I, I wouldn’t date until Lil Butter leaves the house after he graduates. People always tell me that it’s impossible and I’m crazy for thinking that I can do that. It only sounds impossible to those who can’t do it :coffee:

    I guess I’ve turned semi-simp. I believe that the whole child neglect thing against Draya was fabricated.
