Wally Pfister won an Academy Award for best cinematography Sunday for his work on “Inception.” After the awards, he made a point of expressing support for the union crews that worked on the movie.

“I think that what is going on in Wisconsin is kind of madness right now,” Pfister says. “I have been a union member for 30 years and what the union has given to me is security for my family. They have given me health care in a country that doesn’t provide health care and I think unions are a very important part of the middle class in America all we are trying to do is get a decent wage and have medical care.”
