Oscar Nominated Scripts Recap

Hollywood's big night is coming up on Sunday, and all the pundits are predicting who will win, and who will be snubbed. For those of us wishing to break in (and those in the industry, I'd imagine), the Oscars can be incredibly fun - or incredibly aggravating.

I can write better than that with my eyes closed!
How did they overlook him/her/that movie (cough Dark Knight cough)?!

Whatever your opinions may be, it's good to take a close look at the Best Screenplay Nominees - adapted and original - to see what caught the Academy's eye this year. Deadline has done a nice wrap-up of them.

You can read the Original and Adapted screenplay write ups there.
