    What is the best (nominated) original screenplay that didn’t win Best Original Screenplay?

    The options are my personal favorites, I have included “Other” if you disagree.

    Shout-outs:
    American Graffiti (Willard Huyck, Gloria Katz and George Lucas)
    Bonnie and Clyde (Robert Benton and David Newman)
    The Conversation (Francis Ford Coppola)
    Far from Heaven (Todd Haynes)
    Finding Nemo (David Reynolds, Bob Peterson and Andrew Stanton)
    The Incredibles (Brad Bird)
    Manhattan (Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman)
    Memento (Christopher Nolan and Jonathan Nolan)
    Reds (Warren Beatty and Trevor Griffiths)
    The Royal Tenenbaums (Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson)
    WALL-E (Pete Docter, Jim Reardon and Andrew Stanton)
    Y tu mama tambien (Alfonso Cuaron and Carlos Cuaron)
    Zero Dark Thirty (Mark Boal)

    All terrific screenplays. I almost went with Back to the Future, until I saw Sex Lies and Videotape up there. That’s still my favorite Soderbergh film.

    Not that I ever actually read the screenplay, but the structuring of “Zero Dark Thirty”‘s story still blows me away.

    From all the movies you listed, I’d probably go with ZDT, The Royal Tenenbaums, or Memento.
    A Fish Called Wanda, Inception, Boogie Nights, The Conversation, and American Graffiti are all great as well, but are not so seamless.
