    *1988, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Broadcast News

    An inspired comedian and auteur, Albert Brooks is known for a sense of humor that is delicate and self-deprecating while also delightfully accessible. Modern Romance revolves around a world-class neurotic, film director Robert Cole (Brooks), who obsesses over his girlfriend, Mary (Harrold) -- especially after he repeatedly breaks up with her. Driven to the point of distraction by the beautiful bank executive, he constantly wins her back only to immediately lose her again. Filled with envy, Cole interrogates her long-distance callers, harasses her clients, and dogs her every move. Still, even as Robert and Mary’s relationship seems certain to founder once again, there’s always hope.

    Modern Romance is directed and written by Albert Brooks with co-writer Monica Johnson, produced by Andrew Scheinman and Martin Shafer, with cinematography by Eric Saarinen, and editing by David Finfer.
