    The Amazing Race: Which Writers Could Adapt & Survive Their Way To An Oscar Nod?

    Considering they spend the rest of their time ignored, humiliated, rewritten and robbed of credit, it's only fair that screenwriters get two categories at the Academy Awards, effectively doubling their chances of being nominated.

    Aaron Sorkin Penning HBO Miniseries About L.A. Hotel Chateau Marmont For John Krasinski
