As Precious gears up for its (count 'em) six Academy Award nominations, Women & Hollywood guest blogger L.A. Collins sat down with executive producer Lisa Cortes who, while  revealing her "triple threat" status in art, music, and film, also describes the - er - creativity needed on the set of Precious: "The development, production and post of Precious presented many challenges. Honoring the work, finding the talent, and creating a believable New York circa 1987 had me constantly relying on my ability to improvise. I remember one day where we showed up at a location and there was dog crap all over the sidewalk. All you can do is start shoveling." Read the full interview here.
