Coverage of Woman in Black looks to be following the pattern of Kick Ass, X-Men First Class and Stardust: Ooooooo look Jonathan Ross has turned up to the premiere because his friend is in the film!


Nothing to do with his wife having written the fucking screenplay then? Bastards.

It's at this point that I gives (limited) props to ITV for actually acknowledging her existence and having a brief interview with her, even if they did spend more time interviewing Ross first, and they probably only acknowledged her because every single one of the film's stars that they asked what the best thing about the film was said Jane Goldman's script.

Her IMDB pages says she's the "sister-in-law of Paul Ross."

This amuses me.

I didn't notice that at first because of the eye-popping boob shelf she has going on in the main photo. O.O

Ahem. Yes, this reminds me a bit of Prof. Brian Cox/Gia Milinovich. OK, she may not be as big a mover and shaker as Jane Goldman, but surely she deserves a bit of limelight too. She wrote a Guardian article about invisible [partner] syndrome here.

It doesn't help that writer's get shafted generally with the plaudits usually go to the actors and directors with writers barely getting a mention.

To further illustrate this point, I had absolutely no idea she wrote the screenplay for anything. I didn't know what she did for a living. In my defence I'd like to say that I had no idea who did write those films.

I knew she wrote Stardust, but didn't know of some of her others-I might've bothered to go with them to see First Class if I'd known it was hers. They're longterm friends of Gaiman's, he talks about working with her on stuff in one of his books IIRC, ages and ages back.

To be fair, when they interviewed Ross, it was about his wife's script, rather than anything else.

Still leaves the question of why they were choosing to interview him on the basis that he was presumably in the house some of the time while it was being written...
