The Adapted Screenplay category should prove far more interesting with two films of the "bleak" school (Beautiful Kate and Blessed) up against Mao's Last Dancer and Balibo. With Australian box office earnings now over $14 million dollars I am hoping Jan Sardi (MLD) wins in a cakewalk.
What do you think? Who wrote the best adapted screenplay of 2009? (vote in the poll ----->).
Do you agree S&D will romp in best original screenplay or will there be a surprise result?
If Rachel Ward wins for BK will she tell us all to take our dark, bleak, depressing medicine and learn to love it?
Will anyone mention Jim Schembri in their acceptance speech?
