Want to learn about screenwriting? Read more scripts!
Awards season is here, and that means catching up on a bunch of reading. I love when studios begin to release their screenplays, because we get to read what's been made and peruse some of our favorite stories to see what they looked like on the page. I also like to read the scripts of movies I didn't like, to see if anything didn't translate.
Well, now you have the opportunity to read and download some of the hottest screenplays of the year.
While we don't know the official noms yet, I bet a bunch of these screenplays make the cut.
