Last night the renown writers award was given to the screenwriter and author of book on which is based The Imitation Game.
If you wish to learn some stats, Scripter award winners have gone to win best adapted screenplay Oscar ten times over the past 26 years the award has been handed out. So we can say that the winner is not much of an Oscar bellwether since it has rarely matched the Academy winners for adapted script but definitively that is not the purpose of this award that looks to spotlight writers.
News are not yet at their official site but soon will be here.
Winner is in *BLUE.
Today the USC Libraries announced the finalists for the current edition of the award that honors the screenwriter (s) and original author (s) of what the selection committee believes is the year's most accomplished cinematic adaptation.
