Scripting Awards Season: The First Screenplays

Screenplays for award contenders are posted for download to circumvent a rule: if anyone from the public can download them, no one at the Academy can say they were intended only to influence Oscar voters. Among the first PDFs, Sony Pictures Classics’ roster includes Animal Kingdom; Barney’s Version; Get Low; Inside Job; Made in Dagenham; Mother and Child and Please Give. Overture Films’ front door is here. Scripts include Let Me In; Jack Goes Boating and Stone. Overture also features, from Anchor Bay, City Island and Solitary Man (forthcoming).

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
