HBO’s ‘Game Change,’ won four Emmys last night, including one for writer Danny Strong, director Jay Roach and actress Julianne Moore.
“I think that the way to solve problem [of criticism] is to make the film as truthful and accurate as possible, so when you’re critics call you out for being unfair, you know that you were and those are partisan attacks,” he said after the ceremony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Palin was critical of the short film, as her political PAC blasted the film in email to supporters before its release.
“We have warned viewers of Game Change’s distortions,” the email read. “Based upon the description and reports from people who have viewed the film, HBO must add a disclaimer that this movie is fiction.”
The movie also won an Emmy for Miniseries or Movie.
Moore, the actress who won an Emmy for playing Palin, referred to Palin’s criticism in her acceptance speech.
“I feel so validated because Sarah Palin gave me a big thumbs down,” she said.
Later Moore added that she regretted not thanking two women who were instrumental in the film.
“The one thing I left out of my acceptance speech was Tina Fey and Katie Couric,” she said. “In my research, I saw how influential they were [during the election]. I really learned a lot.”
