I really think that the artist will come out on top for original screenplay, even though there’s no dialogue it still managed to pick up the bafta and I think it’s likely to repeat this at the oscars. Adapted is definitely between the descendents and moneyball so I’m picking moneyball because I liked it less.

“I’m picking moneyball because I liked it less.”

Ha ha ha! Nice. I can see that you are already heeding our advice from the first video.

If ‘The Artist’ wins screenplay, it will be a huge upset over Woody Allen. I’m sticking with the Woodman, because this will be the one place they decide to honor him.
