2013 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay
69

"Argo."
"Argo."
Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 85th Academy Awards through February 24th, when the winners are announced.

Here's our take on best adapted screenplay, which has turned into a genuine a three-way showdown between Tony Kushner, Chris Terrio and David O. Russell. Kushner seemed like the big favorite for a while, but "Silver Linings" won the BAFTA and "Argo" won the USC Scripter and the WGA Award and has all the momentum... I held on to a "Lincoln" prediction as long as I could but now I'm going for "Argo."

Nominees and predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here, and this list of all the Oscar-nominated films available ON DEMAND right now.

The nominees:
"Argo" Screenplay by Chris Terrio
"Beasts of the Southern Wild" Screenplay by Lucy Alibar & Benh Zeitlin
"Life of Pi" Screenplay by David Magee
"Lincoln" Screenplay by Tony Kushner
"Silver Linings Playbook" Screenplay by David O. Russell
