Generously lending her “Best Picture” Oscar to Phil Saviano is producer Blye Faust. Along with Nicole Rocklin, she began working on the film after hearing in 2007 about the Globe Spotlight Team’s investigation. Quoted in a recent profile for the website, she explained what the producer’s role involved: “We had to get the rights, develop the relationships with the reporters, manage the development process, oversee the financing, work together to find the cast, staff the movie…and all of this was before production even started.”
