Ten finalists have been chosen from among the 5,879 submissions to this year's competition for Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. The Nicholl Committee will now judge the 10 scripts. The committee may award up to five of these $30,000 fellowships, which are presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The finalists and their scripts are Weiko Lin (Los Angeles) for "Chalk"; Morgan Read-Davidson (Downey, Calif.) for "The Days Between"; Robert Zameroski (Stevenson Ranch, Calif.) for "Dogwoods"; Seth Resnik (West Hollywood) and Ron Moskovitz (Los Angeles) for "Fire in a Coal Mine"; Lauren Sheppard (Austin, Texas) for "The Last Wish Girl" ; Shannon Elizabeth Slater (Somerset, U.K.) for "Masterpiece"; Michael D. Zungalo (Philadelphia) for "No Country"; Colleen Cooper De Maio (Los Angeles) for "Pirates of Lesser Providence"; Gian Marco Masoni (Santa Monica) for "Ring of Fire" and Robin Brown (Santa Monica) for "Sane." This is the first time a writer in the U.K. has reached the final round. Fellowship recipients will be announced later this month. [M.L. Liu]
