Today we take a break from the acting awards to present the Top 5 for Best Screenplay. Here are the results:
5. Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen) – 41 points
4. 12 Years A Slave (John Ridley) – 62 points
3. The Wolf of Wall Street (Terence Winter) – 74 points
2. Before Midnight (Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke) – 99 points
1. Her (Spike Jonze) – 110 points
In a close fight for the top spot, it was Spike Jonze’s strikingly original Her that emerged as the Best Screenplay for 2013. Three other Oscar nominees made the cut but the LAMB members made sure to rectify the widely perceived “snub” for Inside Llewyn Davis. Further down the list Nebraska and Blue Jasmine tied for 7th, Captain Phillips placed 12th, American Hustle was 15th, Dallas Buyers Club finished 16th. Lagging way behind was Philomena, only managing a paltry 4 points.
