If it was up to me, films based on a real life stories should be adapted per se because I believe there’s always a source – “The King’s Speech”, “Fighter”, “Spotlight”, “Straight Outta Compton”, “Green Book” and “The Favourite” were more or less known stories before their films. It’s hard to compare well written “Spotlight” with creative genius that was “Inside Out”. I undertstand the technicality that made those screenplays originals and “Whiplash” and “Moonlight” adapted but c’mon… Therefore I’m fine with “…Neighborhood” and “Ford v Ferrari” as adapted screenplays.September 10, 2019 at 9:06 am #1203067625
I decided to check out original screenplay predictions by experts (since it’s my favorite category even with “Green Book” sadly defeating “The Favourite” last year) and was surprised by 2 things:
A – both “The Farewell” and “Parasite” are in overall Top 5. I don’t buy 2 getting in, one would be a success for Asian filmmakers.
B – not a single mention of “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “Bombshell”?
I hope Tarantino won’t win for “…Hollywood”, that writing was not his sharpest.
EDIT: Good reviews of “Knives Out” make me very happy! After toothless “Crooked House” and misguided “Murder on the Orient Express” we deserve some good whodunit. 😀August 27, 2019 at 11:52 am #1203043110
It’s a matter of opinion but you should check it out for fine performances by Linney and Daniels plus good early showcase for Jesse Eisenberg. It was a little bit in the mold of Woody Allen.August 27, 2019 at 10:22 am #1203043003
TBH I’m surprised that Laura Linney didn’t get nominated for “The Squid and the Whale” back in 2005 when the competition was weaker and she had some precursors under her belt. That film also got nominated for its original screenplay.
