WISCONSIN: 12 Years a Slave screenwriter John Ridley has revealed he regrets not thanking director Steve McQueen in his Oscars speech. His omission of the British filmmaker sparked speculation that the pair had a rift as he accepted his prize for best adapted screenplay. Steve later failed to thank John in his own acceptance speech for the best film. “I do regret it.
