    According to AwardsCircuit.com, it has been announced that amidst some controversy, it will compete in Original Screenplay and not in Adapted Screenplay.

    Thoughts on this… 

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    It should be. They are credited for writing without an adaptation. If The King’s Speech can win an Oscar for Original Screenplay, so should this

    Going to be honest, I can’t see this getting anywhere near a nomination.

    ^ Yeah. Even though the film is great, it appears that the Oscars don’t like Wes Anderson’s films.

    Because that’s why Moonrise Kingdom was nominated for Original Screenplay and Fantastic Mr. Fox was nominated for Animated Movie

    Are we supposed to be shocked by this news, to even have its own thread?

    The only controversy in screenplays this year is FOXCATCHER, whose category remains unknown (But they’ll go with adapted, for sure).

    Was there really any question about that? He cited another author as an influence but it was otherwise all Anderson’s work (like when he dedicated Darjeeling LImited to Satyajit Ray). 

    The writers’ branch loves him. He’s not safe but I’m pretty comfortable in predicting him.

    …will they? They wrote the screenplay well before the memoir material was published.

    As is obvious by my signature, I hope this film gets everything, especially Screenplay. It belongs in Original, because (though I haven’t read the book) it doesn’t really seem like a straight adaptation.

    Yeah, this shouldn’t even be newsworthy. It was clear all along that it was a 100% original screenplay. I don’t know why people even thought this was adapted (adapted from what, exactly?). The “inspired by the works of Stefan Zweig” thing had absolutely nothing to do with the actual screenplay credit. Zweig was simply a general influence, that’s all.

    Grand Budapest is a much beloved film from a much beloved writer-director. If it gets in for anything, it will be screenplay, and I think it will.

    What I mean is that all those films got only one or two nominations apiece. While Moonrise, Fantastic and Grand Budapest were all wonderful films, Anderson never got in for Picture or Director and only one soul screenplay/animated feature nom for all these films. It leads me to believe that Wes Anderson is too quirky for the Oscars.

    May the best of your todays be the worst of your tomorrows.

    Guess it won’t be getting nominated.
