The 2014 BAFTA Awards are underway in England and the best of the best are being honored when it comes to films and filmmakers that made waves in 2013. One of the most coveted awards of the night is the Best Original Screenplay, an award that saw a slew of screenwriters be nominated.
It was a pretty close race in the end, as there were big names like the Coen Brothers and Woody Allen as well as dark horses like Bob Nelson for Nebraska. But despite the momentum of other scripts, American Hustle picked up another major award, winning for Best Original Screenplay.
BAFTA 2014 — BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
- Woody Allen – Blue Jasmine
- Joel & Ethan Coen – Inside Llewyn Davis
- Alfonso Cuarón & Jonás Cuarón – Gravity
- Bob Nelson – Nebraska
- Eric Warren Singer and David O. Russell – American Hustle — WINNER
American Hustle was a heavy favorite entering awards season, and while it’s held its own against other films in other categories, it has fallen back a bit in the pack. Still, the Best Original Screenplay win was huge and the film is starting to pick up steam heading into the Oscars.
