2019 Academy Award Nominated Screenplays - The 92th Oscars

Each year studios will post the screenplays (usually shooting scripts) of films that they are putting up for award consideration. For the past 20 years SimplyScripts has been tracking those scripts as they are posted by the studios. I encourage you to download those you find interesting for personal/educational use. They usually disappear after award season has concluded.
