As soon as we thought we could predict the outcome of the Oscars, here comes another surprise! This one's brought to you by the Writers Guild of America. Picked for Best Original Screenplay was Christopher Nolan
's "Inception." The director, famously dissed for not getting a Best Director Oscar nomination, may just win the Best Original Screenplay come Oscar night. Oscar front-runner, "The King's Speech
" was not nominated because it didn't quality under union rules which prompted Nolan to say during his WGA
acceptance award that he looked forward to a time when he could accept the award "without qualification."
That could be the beginning of a great script Mr. Nolan, go write it :happy
For adapted screenplay, I'm happy to report that Aaron Sorkin
's fantastic script won! Based on "The Accidental Billionaires" by Ben Mezrich
, "The Social Network
" was the only film last year that I predicted to win this very category.
