2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Original Screenplay

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the
87th Academy Awards through February 22nd, when the winners are announced.

“Birdman” and “Boyhood” might be battling it out for Best Picture, but they are in a genuine three-way race here, with Wes Anderson and Hugo Guinness’ script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” pulling ahead with its recent BAFTA win. Any of the three screenplays could win, but something tells us this will end up going to “Budapest.”

Our prediction below. Check out our predictions in other categories here.

The Nominees:
“Birdman,” Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. & Armando Bo
“Boyhood,” Richard Linklater
“Foxcatcher,” E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman
“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Wes Anderson; Story by Wes Anderson & Hugo Guinness
“Nightcrawler,” Dan Gilroy

Will Win: “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
Could Win: “Birdman” or “Boyhood”
Should Win: “Nightcrawler”
Shoulda Been Here: “Mr. Turner”
