Want to Read This Year’s Oscar Nominated Screenplays?

A local poll of Team TVWriter™ has discovered that our favorite of the nominees for Best Original Screenplay is Arrival and our fave nominee for Best Adapted Screenplay is Moonlight, with Hidden Figures right on its heels.

These screenplays and their competition are all worthwhile reading, which brings us to our Valentine’s Day gift for you. Here are links to all the Oscar nominated screenplays in this year’s competition. Except, unfortunately, The Lobster. Sorry, but we haven’t found that one anywhere. (Guess its producers don’t want to share the goodies.)
