Academy Award winning writer, Tom Schulman shared his thoughts on whether or not winning an Oscar makes you a better writer at this year's Central Coast Writers Conference.


"One thing that happens when you win an Oscar is that people say 'I don't want to give an Oscar writer notes. If he wrote this it must be good.' And that's just wrong. You are no better for having won it than you were for not. And you are no better afterwards, so in fact you're probably worse because your ego is too big and you are gonna be messing it up."
