'Up In The Air' Author Walter Kirn Slams Oscar Snub Over Twitter

Posted: Updated:

'Up in the Air' author Walter Kirn didn't receive an Oscar invite and he has taken to Twitter to vent.

"Caution to writers: Don't expect that because you write a novel that becomes an Oscar-nominated film that you'll be invited to the Oscars," he tweeted on Tuesday.

Kirn wrote that instead of watching the ceremony in the Kodak Theater, he will be live blogging while watching it on TV.

'Up in the Air' is nominated for six Oscars, including best picture and best adapted screenplay.

A Paramount rep told the New York Post, "The Academy has a process that we are following and we are respectfully waiting for them to allocate additional tickets. Of course, Walter Kirn is on our wish list for seats, as are producers and executive producers of our film who do not have seats yet."
