LITTLETON, Colo. — Inside a basement in Littleton, a family has a new DVD to show off.
Vince and Terri Carter collect all their daughter’s movies. Now the film on top of the stack on the shelf is the first that’s been nominated for not just one, but 11 Oscars.
"I know everybody says that, 'Oh, it’s just good that you got nominated,'" said Terri Carter, a very proud mom. "Well, I think that is true."
The Carters' daughter, Allison Rose Carter, is one of the co-producers of “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” She grew up in Colorado, went to Columbine High School and started making her first movies here.
"She has surpassed anything that I’ve ever done," said Vince Carter, Allison's father. "What you want for your kids is that you want them to be happy. She’s not only happy, but successful and happy. Man, that just blows me away."
Allison grew up in Littleton. She was at Columbine in class the day of the shooting and she filmed her first movies with the help of her parents.
"We played some of the bystanders," Terri said. "They filmed part of it in front of our fireplace."
Allison’s parents said that she would watch Steven Spielberg films growing up and now her movie is nominated in some of the same categories he is.
Whatever the outcome of the awards, there will be two proud parents back home in Colorado celebrating their daughter's success.
"She was here just this last Christmas and I said, 'You’re a better person than I am,'" Vince said. "It’s true. She’s a better person than I am."
