I was rooting for Before Midnight, but 12 Years isn’t a bad win.
AOC definitely should’ve made it in over Captain Phillips. Very surprising omission.
I went with Before Midnight, but Wolf of Wall Street was an alternate.
The fact that Before Midnight lost seriously upset me.
Before Midnight really was a great screenplay, but WoWW really had great stage pieces and characterization. 12 Years a Slave was too Shakespearian for me. The best scripts are ones that feel based in reality, and John Ridley’s wasn’t for me.
Gabriel is gonna go ham on this thread.
Among this lineup I would’ve voted for The Wolf of Wall Street, but August: Osage County should have won.
The Captain Phillips nomination is ridiculous (the WGA win is even more ridiculous).
I picked The Wolf of Wall Street but August: Osage County should have won here.
Both The Wolf of Wall Street and August:Osage County had terrible screenplay
Before Midnight should’ve won by a LANDSLIDE,and Philomena was my runner-up
I dont think I’ve ever mentioned this before as it seems to be sacrilege, but I’ve never been a big fan of the “Before” films. I like Delpy and Hawke even more, but these Before Lunchtime/Bedtime/Breakfast films have generally left me feeling sleepy.
Tough choice up there but it was between WoWS and 12 Years for me.
Before Midnight was brilliant (And the only one I can fairly compare to its source material), but I’ve always valued great actions above great dialogue, so I gotta go with Ridley.
I´m forever pissed that Before Midnight (and Before Sunrise as well for that matter) didn´t win. Unforgivable. Brilliant trilogy, even more brilliant screenplay for the third, and best, film.
I’m fine with “12 Years a Slave” winning here. Voted for that.
Philomena was beautifully adapted. This could have been a boring ass movie but the writing was so good. Before Midnight is my close 2nd and 12 Years a Slave is a close 3rd. Captain Phillips had memerable lines but come to find out that most memerable line was improved (I’m the Captain Now of course). My biggest problem with Wolf of Wall Street was the script even though I loved the movie. Something about just didn’t work for me. My nominees would have been
The Great Gatsby
12 Years a Slave
