Longford accountant Sean O’Brien will celebrate his victory at an Academy Awards Ceremony in the not too distant future, where his yet-to-be-written first screenplay will win an unprecedented 14 Oscars,
writes Gerry McBride.
With intentions to someday quit his day job and write a script for a feature film at some stage, Sean knows he will be beyond delighted when the long-gestating project received an immediate studio greenlight and incredible Hollywood buzz.
“This is such a shock… this is beyond belief” the 27 year old father of two will say as he collects his Oscar for Best Screenplay. “I’d just like to thank everyone who believed in me. A special thanks goes out to Warner Bros. who took a chance on a first draft from a brand new screenwriter who had never even taken a single writing class, and a big thanks to Martin Scorsese for agreeing to direct “
With the entire island of Ireland glued to their TVs and his Mam beaming with pride, Sean will go on to thank those who will work with him on the feature.
“We had such a great team on this move”, the cubicle jockey will gush. “They’ve really welcomed me into the community here in Hollywood, I just can’t thank them enough for all the work they’ve offered me since this picture crossed 2 Billion dollars at the international box office”.
The as-yet-untitled epic will go on to garner gongs for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio, Best Actress for Rachel Weisz, Best Supporting Actor for Casey Affleck, Best Supporting Actress for Eva Green, Best Editing, Best Sound, Best Cinematography, Best Make-Up, Best Visual Effects, Best Original Score, and Best original Song for Seans brothers band Kickface.
