USC Scripter Nominations

Always an interesting group as they honor both the screenwriter and the original source author as well. The big surprise here is the inclusion of What Maisie Knew, which has been absent from most people's minds all year. I am particularly excited about the nomination for The Spectacular Now, which is well deserved. The nominees are below:

"Captain Phillips," Billy Ray, screenwriter, and Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty, authors of "A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea"

"Philomena," Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope, screenwriters, and Martin Sixsmith, author of "The Lost Child of Philomena Lee"

"The Spectacular Now," Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, screenwriters, and Tim Tharp, novelist

"12 Years a Slave," John Ridley, screenwriter, and Solomon Northup, author

"What Maisie Knew," Carroll Cartwright and Nancy Doyne, screenwriters, and Henry James, novelist
