Oscar Analysis: 'Gravity' and 'Hustle' tie, Oprah snubbed, and 'Wolf' un-shamed among Academy shocks and sure-things

(Page 9 of 10)

Best Adapted Screenplay

Who’s in:

Before Midnight, Richard Linklater & Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy
Captain Phillips, Billy Ray
Philomena, Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope
12 Years a Slave, John Ridley
The Wolf of Wall Street, Terence Winter

John Ridley is the strongest contender right now, but that’s not to diminish the other’s in this race. The screenplay category can be very fluid, and there are many weeks to go. Hearts and minds can change, but I suspect they’ll stay devoted to 12 Years a Slave.

Who’s out: Tracy Letts, August: Osage County
Letts won the Pulitzer and the Tony, but he should cancel that P.O.T. gold necklace he ordered. (Doesn’t have the same ring as E.G.O.T. anyway.)

Prize Fighter Score: 5 for 5.

What can I say? I’ll just keep it humble and type a smiley face.


…. And ONE-HUNDRED EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
