87th Oscar Original Screenplay Updates (2014-2015 Awards Season) (6/3/2014)

The writers branch of the Academy has flirted with Mike Leigh several times, so I’m wondering if Mr. Turner might finally be enough for the full membership to turn his nomination into a win.

My long list of fifty seems a little bit Cannes-heavy at the moment, so perhaps I’ll take a look back at the Sundance entries when I update this next. For now, however, I’ll live with it since so many of the blockbusters that are filling up theaters in the United States are remakes and sequels.

A quick note that Foxcatcher, Whiplash and The Imitation Game will show up on my adapted screenplay predictions later this week, so that’s why they’re not included here. Enjoy!
