2014 USC Scripter Awards
John Ridley, and his narrative counterpart Solomon Northup won the USC Scripter Award this year, an award that not only honors the screenwriter, but also the original source material author. So that means over a century and a half after his death, Northup has received a prize for his writing. Most people, including myself, think that Ridley will repeat at the Oscars next month (now three weeks away!), and this is just a nice prize along 12 Years path to Adapted Screenplay Oscar gold.
