Horror Contending for Best Screenplaythegoldensimatar
With the Oscar bait settled into theaters; the campaigns for the voter's support has only just begun. Most high profile is Pixar throwing all it can into trying to nail Toy Story 3 nominations in any category (especially Best Picture). However with Variety publishing the WGA list for eligible screenplays for 'Best Original Screenplay' and 'Best Adapted Screenplay'; a lot of focus has fallen on Toy Story 3 (and others) has been deem ineligible. This being mostly due to the WGA's strict rules about entering a contending screenplay for Guild vote.
But who cares about animated toys? Buried within the list of contenders for the coveted spots are a few (and one extreme) long-shots and sure shoe-in coming from out own genre!
Best Original Screenplay
- Black Swan
Best Adapted Screenplay
- The Crazies
- Let Me In
- Shutter Island
- The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Now will any of these films get a spot? Out of all of them, Black Swan the only one that really stands a chance. Of course the 'H' word will be downplayed as Oscar season gets into full swing.
