    I still dont understand how movies based on true story stories (American Hustle, Fruitvale Station) are considered original screenplays but sequels (Before Midnight, and more) are considered adapted

    Sequels and prequels are concidered adapted, since they were adapted of the original film (doesnt make much sence to me too) and well, if it is not adapted in any specific book or article then the script is original, no matter what it was inspired.

    So I suppose that we should include Mud in the conversation for Original Screenplay, at least, given the success the studio had in making it the first available screener of the season.

    From technology and it’s impact on men, to space thrillers and slavery/ racism.

    1. Her
    2. Blue Jasmine

    3. American Hustle
    4. Inside Llewyn Davis
    5. Gravity

    ALT: Saving Mr. Banks & Nebraska

    Adapted Screenplay

    1. 12 Years a Slave
    2. Captain Phillips
    3. August: Osage County
    4. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
    5. Philomena
