The 19th USC Libraries Scripter Award Contenders Unveiled
The only institution that recognizes both the authors and screenwriters of a book-based film feature, the University of Southern California Libraries has revealed names running for its USC Libraries Scripter Award this year. Given annually, the prize honors writers for the best achievement in adaptation among English-language pictures released during the previous year and based on a book, novella, or short story.
Selected out of forty-five eligible films, there are five author-screenwriter teams that made their way to the competition. Listed in alphabetical order by film title, they are those behind "Children of Men", "The Devil Wears Prada", "The Illusionist", "The Last King of Scotland", and "Notes on a Scandal."
The winner will be announced by the selection committee on January 12 and the gala honoring the winning collaboration will be held on February 18 in USC's historic Edward L. Doheny Jr. Memorial Library with Hal Kanter returning as the grand emcee for the seventh time.
