Excellent adaptation, remarkable performances ! Too bad Julianne Moore didn’t get a campaign. Happy to see The Spectacular Now, too ! moviewatcher If Before Midnight doesn’t get in at the oscars, heads will roll. rufussondheim what an odd selection. I bet no one could have predicted those five. Bryce Forestieri I can’t blame them for ignoring THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. Who would want to nominate Jordan Belfort for anything good. Jerry Grant Very odd group. I definitely support Philomena’s inclusion. Really smart thoughtful script Marshall Flores WOLF missing here effectively finalizes the predicted winner of AD’s prediction model in Adapted Screenplay, unless WOLF can win *both* the WGA and BAFTA. That would lead to a razor-thin result indeed. Corvo Screenwriters Choice Awards: Best Original Screenplay Alfonso and Jonas Cuarón, “Gravity” (WINNER) Woody Allen, “Blue Jasmine” Spike Jonze, “Her” Joel and Ethan Coen, “Inside Llewyn Davis” Bob Nelson, “Nebraska” Best Adapted Screenplay John Ridley, “12 Years a Slave” (WINNER) Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater, “Before Midnight” Billy Ray, “Captain Phillips” Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope, “Philomena” Terence Winter, “The Wolf of Wall Street” Zach WOWS SHOULD win for script IMO, and I hope the Oscars don’t snub it Dragon Tattoo-style. Are plays eligible (Osage), or did it have to be a book first? Kane Rufus, actually 4 of the 5 nominees aren’t surprising. But What Maisie Knew making it in…never saw that coming. I forgot it even existed. matt Interesting point that this would be the only award where the writers of both the screenplay AND source material would be recognized, and thus Jordan Belfort would be recognized had WOWS been nominated. Cristina Yay for The Spectacular Now! I know is a long show but I would love to see a Best Adapted Screenplay nominations at the Oscar. It’d be so well deserve! Pat Thrilled by the inlcusion of ‘What Maisie Knew’, but sad to see ‘Labor Day’ passed over again.
