Award Season Has Begun! - posted by Don

Well, at least for me with regard to the race for best screenplay (original or adapted).

Universal Pictures has posted two screenplays that are up for award consideration.

I’ll be keeping a running tally on the Scripts Studios are posting for Award Consideration page.

You can check out past winners on the Oscar Winners through the Ages page.

I’ve also updated and cleaned out the broken links on the Full Movie Script List page.

Lastly, you have until 11:59 pm edt today to get your One Week Challenge script submitted.

And, without further ado, two scripts submitted by Universal for award consideration.
