Call Me by Your Name’ screenwriter becomes oldest Oscar winner

Ivory had meant to co-direct Call Me by Your Name with Luca Guadagnino but bowed out when the producers thought a single director would be better. Instead, Call Me By Your Name's James Ivory took home the award. Written by Ivory and directed by Luca Guadagnino, the film is a coming-of-age tale that follows two young men as they fall in love and was adapted from the third in a series of books by André Aciman. "You have the feeling at the end of the film that this is his first love, but there will be many other loves in his life".

Officially, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences only tracks data pertaining to the ages of acting and directing nominees, with the oldest competitive victor on record being Christopher Plummer, who was 82 when he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Beginners in 2012.

The director said while accepting the award "whether straight or gay or somewhere in between, we've all gone through first love, I hope, mostly intact".

Speaking backstage after his award, Ivory said that his victory after so many years felt like a 'great hiccup'. He also thanked his former romantic partner and film collaborator of 44-years, Ishmail Marchant, who died in 2005.

The two-year yield slipped to 2.23 percent from 2.26 percent, and the 30-year yield dropped to 3.11 percent from 3.13 percent. Some investors took that as a signal that the Fed may get more aggressive, which sent stocks down and Treasury yields higher.


Ivory, Merchant and Jhabvala also frequently collaborated with Bollywood superstar Shashi Kapoor.
