The 21st Rewrite

Parasite, Jojo Rabbit and all of the Screenwriting Nominees for the 92nd Academy Awards

February 12, 2020

This is a bonus episode in which we discuss the merits of all of the screenplays nominated for the Academy Awards this year, in the two categories of Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay. Now that we know who the winners are, we talk about whether we felt the right choices were made. This is a spoiler-free episode so if you haven’t seen all the films, don’t fear, we won’t ruin any of them for you.

Note: the Academy does not have ‘judges’ but there are specific members of the Academy who can vote on these categories, in the podcast we used the word ‘judge’ as shorthand to mean anyone who is meant to be casting a vote and making that judgement about which screenplays they felt should win.
