USC Scripter Nominations 2014


The USC Scripter announced their nominations for the adapted screenplays of the year. They nominate both the writers of the film and the source material as you all know. The biggest snub if you wanna call it is definitely "The Wolf of Wall Street". Surprise nominations for "What Maisie Knew" which is a nice little drama that was completely absent from the awards discussion. These are the nominees:

John Ridley - screenwriter and Solomon Northup - author of "Twelve Years a Slave" (12 Years a Slave)

Billy Ray - screenwriter and Richard Phillips and Stephen Talty - authors of "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea" (Captain Phillips)

Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope - screenwriters, and Martin Sixsmith - author of The Lost Child of Philomena Lee (Philomena)

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber - screenwriters and Tim Tharp - author of the novel of the same name (The Spectacular Now)

Carroll Cartwright and Nancy Doyne - screenwriters and Henry James - author of the novel of the same name (What Maisie Knew)
