"Social Network," "True Grit" Among USC Scripter Nominees

The Scripter Awards, a juried award created by USC Libraries to honor film adaptations of literary works, has announced their annual nominees. A unique award on the precursor circuit, the Scripters award the authors of what a 58-member selection committee consider the “most accomplished cinematic adaptation.” The expected likes “The Social Network,” “Winter’s Bone,” “127 Hours” and “True Grit” joined the somewhat surprising inclusion of “The Ghost Writer.” Snubbed adaptations included “Rabbit Hole,” “Never Let Me Go,” “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “I Love You, Phillip Morris,” and “The Way Back.”
