With the 94th Oscars just around the corner, there are still many films to consider for best original screenplay at the 2022 Oscars. With the foundation of a story crafted in its script, this year's collection of potential nominees displayed true vision and creativity.
From the hilarious Red Rocket that was co-written by director Sean Baker to coming-of-age dramedy Belfast written by Kenneth Branagh. While Aaron Sorkin's compelling exploration of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in Being the Ricardos gives us insight into the world of I Love Lucy. Other strong contenders for the award include Paul Thomas Anderson for Licorice Pizza and Mike Mills for C'mon C'mon.
