Oscars 2013: Best Original Screenplay, Who Should Win?

Today I'm looking at who's been nominated for Best Original Screenplay this year. The award was won last year by the great Woody Allen, who holds the record for most wins in this category with three and the most nominations at fifteen. Pretty impressive. But what films this year have the chance to join Woody Allen as a winner for the 2013 Best Original Screenplay, shall we take a look?  

Here are the nominations:

"Amour" Written by Michael Haneke.

"Django Unchained" Written by Quentin Tarantino.

"Flight" Written by John Gatins.

"Moonrise Kingdom" Written by Wes Anderson & Roman Coppola.

"Zero Dark Thirty" Written by Mark Boal.

Who will win? "Django Unchained" Written by Quentin Tarantino.

After picking up the Globe for best screenplay, things are looking good for Mr Tarantino, although I think we could still be in for a few surprises on the night and this category could be one of them.

Who should win? "Amour" Written by Michael Haneke.
The Academy has shown Amour a lot of love this year, picking up nominations in best picture and best director categories. It's a great film and deserves to be rewarded and I can't see it winning either of the big prizes, so giving it best screenplay seems right.

Who should have been nominated? "The Master" written by Paul Thomas Anderson.
The early buzz for the Master had it on top of most peoples prediction list, but as the film was released, it lost a lot of the momentum and while it didn't see its name pop up in Best picture, it should have been recognised for it's writing.

What do think of the choices I've made? Do you agree wholeheartedly or do you disagree angrily? Feel free to let me know, comment, like, share and follow, thanks.
