Winner for Best Adapted Screenplay:
The Social Network – undated, unspecified draft script by Aaron Sorkin (based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires” by Ben Mezrich) – hosted by: Sony Pictures – in pdf format

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea. In a fury of blogging and programming, what begins in his dorm room soon becomes a global social network and a revolution in communication.

I firmly believe that the fact that the studios post scripts for screenplay award consideration is a major factor in winning. Paramount has stopped posting screenplays for award consideration which I believe harms their ability to garner the screenwriting award. I’ve had a couple of academy members email me thanking me for the links to the nominated scripts for the convenience of having the script links in one place (small focus group, yes).
