Sizing Up: Best Original Screenplay

Inside-Llewyn-Davis-CannesWe’re at the end of the Sizing Up series and closing it with a look at the Original Screenplay race. I freely admit that my success rate is still to be determined with this year’s crop of articles, as always, but that kind of comes with the territory of Oscar prognostication. I’m also a bit more confident this year than usual about them, especially this category. It’s going to be a slightly to mostly top heavy list (which is historically the case here), but it’s still a vaguely deep enough one overall to make for a compelling race. I did my best to be thorough, as always, so credit where credit is due for that! I think most of you will find these rankings pretty interesting, but we shall see about that one. Enough delays though, let’s get on with the final list and size up the Best Original Screenplay field!

When he’s not obsessing over new Oscar predictions on a weekly basis, Joey is seeing between 300 and 350 movies a year. He views the best in order to properly analyze the awards race/season each year, but he also watches the worst for reasons he mostly sums up as "so you all don't have to". In his spare time, you can usually find him complaining about the Jets or the Mets. Still, he lives and dies by film. Joey's a voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
