    This is simply factually incorrect. Multiple adaptations of Ferrante’s books have been adapted on film. See Troubling Love (Mario Martone, 1995) and The Days of Abandonment (Roberto Faenza, 2005) as well as the television series, My Brilliant Friend (Saverio Costanzo, 2018).

    It was a joke.

    In this thread I said a while ago that The Academy tends to spread the wealth when a sole writer is also the Director of a movie that’s going to win Best Picture (The Artist and Nomadland are probably the biggest examples). It sounds silly, but with the way Drive My Car is growing and the fact that it will be on HBO Max soon could give it a surge, indeed.

    I’m also considering switching to DMC or TLD. Between the globe, AACTA and now the USC loss, TPOTD has never seemed as strong in screenplay as it has in director and picture.

    It also lost to TLD at Venice, but I’m not really sure that counts since they only give each film one award.

    I just finished watching The French Dispatch and I’m scratching my head that it didn’t receive any Oscar nominations. I did adore the movie, especially the second story “Revisions to a Manifesto”. Reviewing the Oscar nominations again, I thought I would at least see it listed in Original Screenplay, Production Design, Costume Design and Cinematography. Seriously, Oscar branch voters. I think all the nominees for Production Design and Cinematography are worthy so I don’t know who I would switch out for Dispatch, but Costume Design and Screenplay should have been a given. IMHO!

    Life is a thin thread.

    Because it wasn’t a good movie, dude. Anderson needs to do something different for once. TFD felt like that SNL parody of his films.

    Was Drive My Car eligible for USC Scripter? It definitely would have won if it was; Murakami is REVERED by academic scholars.

    Sorry I missed that. I don’t believe the two films, unlike the TV series, are particularly well known, in part because I don’t think Ferrante’s writing is easy to adapt for the screen, which is one of the reasons I think Gyllenhaal’s screenplay has received a great deal of praise.

    There are a number of strong screenplays in contention and while I don’t think TLD will ultimately win the Oscar, I wouldn’t underestimate the genuine respect and goodwill that Gyllenhaal enjoys in the industry (especially among many actresses), and the fact that while opinion is divided, many are very passionate about her film, and view screenplay as the best place to reward it.

    No. It has to be English-language films.

    Maybe I’m a tad biased because I love the film but I am going to predict DRIVE MY CAR to take Screenplay over TPOTD.

    Campion can get her due in Director.

    I’m almost ready to predict King Richard to upset in Original Screenplay. Belfast has been flopping everywhere and I don’t think divisive films like DLU or LP will win, WPITW could, but KR is more of a BP contender.

    King Richard is not happening in Original Screenplay in a million years. Literally no one is passionate about that film’s story or writing at all lol. Belfast has been flopping, which helps Licorice Pizza if it wins at WGA. Belfast would be entering the Oscars with 0 guild wins.

    Letourneau Pizza won’t win the Oscar.

    But it will. It’s going to win WGA and upset at BAFTA. Even them liked it more than Belchfast.
