The prestigious Scripter award is given to the best adapted screenplay of the year, usually taking the source literary material into account as much as the script itself. These films got the nod and aside from Inherent Vice, will probably be screenplay nominees at the Oscars too:
- Gone Girl
- The Imitation Game
- Inherent Vice
- The Theory of Everything
I think Imitation Game probably takes this one, given the historical significance of the biography it was based on.
