The Com­pe­ti­tion

Our bets on other Best Orig­i­nal Screen­play nom­i­nees

Empire (Australasia) - - 2018 Oscars -

The Big Sick _ Ku­mail Nan­jiani and Emily V. Gor­don’s coma-cen­tric rom­com is sharp, mov­ing and con­tains the line, “He’s like Daniel Day-lewis ex­cept he sucks.”

Get Out _ It was a bril­liantly ballsy move for Jor­dan Peele to make his first solo script a scary-funny riff on racism. It paid off, and might just win him a lit­tle gold man.

The Florida Project _ Sean Baker and Chris Ber­goch are surely poised to get their first Os­car nod for their tale of a mother and daugh­ter liv­ing next to Walt Dis­ney World.

Lady Bird _ Greta Ger­wig’s crowd-pleas­ing and semi­au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal com­ing-of-age story is frank, funny and treats its mi­nor char­ac­ters as lov­ingly as its bright hero.
