Awards season has begun. And that means free screenplays to download for your consideration.
Halloween is over and we're not even one week into November, so you know what that means. No, you're not already behind on your holiday shopping (despite what the retailers are trying to tell you). It means that awards season has officially begun.
And with the beginning of awards season come screenplays for you to download, legally and for free, as the studios jockey for position in the hearts and minds of awards voters. This first round of scripts from Amazon Studios includes films from earlier in the year as Amazon reminds voters how much critics loved these films, how much audiences loved these films, or just the mere fact that these films actually came out this past year.
Before we get to the download links, let's check out the trailers. First up, The Big Sick tells the autobiographical tale of Kumail Nanjiani meeting and falling for Emily, only to screw it up and lose her when she falls into a mysterious coma before he can win her back.
Naturally, Amazon Studios would be the distributor behind The Lost City of Z, based on the true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett's adventure deep into the Amazon jungles to discover the remnants of a previously unknown advanced civilization and his fight to convince his critics.
Finally, Brad's Status, written and directed by Mike White (Beatriz at Dinner, School of Rock, The Good Girl, Chuck and Buck), follows the eponymous character as he takes his musical prodigy son on a college tour of Boston. Along the way, Brad recognizes the success of his four closest college friends and calls into question the value of his own life's journey.
Thanks to Amazon Studios, here are the links to the screenplay downloads:

As always, don't wait to download these scripts because we never know when the studios will remove them from the internet. Also, please use these screenplays for your own educational purposes only. More screenplays will be available for free download over the next several weeks as awards season heats up, so stay tuned.
