“Nothing but love for Peloton,” said Nolan Variety backstage on sunday golden balloons ceremony, when asked if he had seen the instructor Jenn Sherman’s Apology for questioning the Byzantine plot of his 2020 science fiction film. “But I didn’t get on today. Maybe I’ll skip it for a while.”
The odds of Nolan himself coming across a four-year-old’s recorded class have captivated the internet for days. The director received a consolation prize of sorts by winning best director at the Globes (his first win in the category), where “Oppenheimer” also dominated the major film awards. Cillian Murphy and Robert Downey Jr. took home the award for best actor and best supporting actor in a dramatic motion picture, respectively, and the film won best soundtrack and best dramatic motion picture.
“Mr. Nolan, I invite you to come take a walk with me in the Peloton studio,” Sherman wrote in response to the awkward moment. “You can critique my class. You will have a great time. You will sit in the front row. And I promise that it will be free of insults.”
Although Sherman couldn’t follow “Tenet,” she was a fan of “Oppenheimer.”
“I may not have understood a minute of what was going on in ‘Tenet.’ “That shit went through my head,” Sherman added. “But I’ve seen ‘Oppenheimer’ twice. And those are six hours of my life that I never want to give back.”
