Chris Christie Policy Kept New Jersey Out of 2015 Oscars

Chris Christie Policy Kept New Jersey Out of 2015 Oscars
BY BOB HOLT

The 2014 film Foxcatcher is based on family heir John DuPont’s recruitment of two Olympic wrestling brothers to train a team for the 1988 Olympics at his farm in Pennsylvania. Foxcatcher is nominated for five Oscars on Sunday.

Most of Foxcatcher was filmed in Pittsburgh. Sony Pictures Classics co-owner Tom Bernard, from Middletown, says the movie could have been filmed in New Jersey.

It turns out Gov. Chris Christie hadn’t signed a tax rebate bill offering tax incentives to production companies to film in New Jersey. “New Jersey would have thousands of jobs, they would have studios, they would have rental houses, they would have catering businesses,” Bernard said, according to an Asbury Park Press story in the Courier Post. “The tax money that would have been spent in the state of New Jersey is spent in another state, and New Jersey is losing.”
