For Your Consideration: This year's Oscar Hopefuls' scripts
LA is starting to buzz with Oscar predictions! Well, actually the buzz is a little lukewarm, because this year there hasn’t been one movie yet that appear as a sure winner. There have been great films like Boyhood, The Imitation Game or Gone Girl, but it’s not like last year. There are still a couple of movies, which are yet to air. So we will shall see.
Also since there is no clear winner, a film like The Grand Budapest Hotel will get nominate and might take something home. We all know, Wes and his movies are more unlikely candidates for the Oscars. I am very happy about this, because I adore Wes Anderson’s work and this is my favorite of his films to date.
What I am most disappointing with this year, is that it’s very slim picking for the Best Actress category. And it is not because of a lack of stellar performances, no, it is because of the lack of great female parts. Come on Hollywood, with all the talk this year about the lack of strong female acting roles, let’s make sure that we move forward in a more balanced way. It’s not like we haven’t done it before! Right now it seems like Reese is the only real contender with her role in Wild.
So here for your consideration, I have collected the so far released Oscar Hopefuls’ screenplays. Download them below by clicking on the image or following the link. Sadly, The Imitation Game screenplay has not been released yet. As soon as I find it, I will post it.
You can now read to your heart’s content until the award show roles around.
