Nora Ephron


Very sad news...

Three time Oscar nominee Nora Ephron, the successful quintuple threat director and screenwriter and playwright and author and columnist who made a career out of the frank depictions of women and their relationships with men and careers and themselves, died today. She was 71.


The New York native wrote and/or directed some of Hollywood’s most admired and even best-loved modern movies, including Silkwood (1983), When Harry Met Sally (1989), This Is My Life (1992, her first directing effort), Sleepless In Seattle (1993), You’ve Got Mail (1998), and Julie And Julia (2009). She was a triple Academy Awards nominee in the Original Screenplay category for three films: SilkwoodWhen Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle

When Harry Met Sally is one of my all-time favorite movies and, other than the awful remake of Bewitched, I have enjoyed almost everything else she has written over the years. 

She will be missed.
