USC Scripter Nominations Lift Winter’s Bone, Ghost Writer

USC Scripter Nominations Lift Winter's Bone, Ghost Writer

The USC Scripter Award nominations are in. This award, which is voted on by a jury of industry critics, filmmakers, academics and screenwriters (including me), is given to films that are based on a literary source (anything original is not eligible, nor was Toy Story 3). It is a window into the adapted screenplay Oscar category, in other words.

Last year, Up in the Air won. This year’s nominees are 127 Hours, The Social Network and True Grit (also nominated by the WGA), and The Ghost Writer and Winter’s Bone, which were not eligible for WGA nominations.

Here’s Hitfix.
