USC Scripter Nominees

An interesting mix, especially the bold choices of Jane Eyre and A Dangerous Method. But I think the film that benefits the most is Tinker, Tailor Soldier Spy. It will have the Brit's support and has done well in craft categories, which may help it break into top categories like Actor for Oldman, and Adapted Screenplay. As for the previously mentioned two, the Academy will most likely go for more popular fare like TGWTDT, The Help, and Hugo instead, but still a nice mix of nominees. In the end it comes down to Moneyball vs. The Descendants,  and I believe the latter will come out on top.

"A Dangerous Method" (screenplay by Christopher Hampton, based on his play "The Talking Cure" and the book "A Most Dangerous Method: The Story of Jung, Freud and Sabina Spielrein" by John Kerr)

"The Descendants" (screenplay by Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings)

"Jane Eyre" (screenplay by Moira Buffini, based on the novel by Charlotte Brontë)

"Moneyball" (screenplay by Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian, based on the book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game" by Michael Lewis)

"Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" (screenplay by Bridget O'Connor and Peter Straughan, based on the novel by John le Carré)
