Hey, Emma Donoghue: Did you know you could make Oscar history by being the first woman to win Best Adapted Screenplay for adapting your own source material?
Donoghue wrote the original “Room” novel that was the basis for the film that earned four Oscar nominations: Best Picture, Best Director for Lenny Abrahamson, Best Actress for Brie Larson and Best Adapted Screenplay. Of the three female solo writers that previously won this race at the Oscars (yes, sadly, there are only three), they all were rewarded for adapting somebody else’s work.
