Contenders for Best Screenplay of 2013

Sandra Bullock in GravityThe announcement for Best Screenplay Oscar nominations will be on January 16, 2014. In the meantime, the contenders have made their screenplays and screenplay adaptations available for consideration. This is the only time of year that the studios make their screenplays available for free due to nomination considerations.

The links are made available directly from the studios during this nomination period, so at some point in the future the below links will no longer be available. For those of you who read a lot of screenplays, you’ll notice that some of the writers use the proper format and techniques, while others don’t, so be careful who you emulate as Hollywood outsiders need to use proper structure to break in.
