USC Scripter Nominations

The Scripter nominations don't hold the weight of say, the WGA, but they nonetheless can give that all important final boost to a fledging film during an awards race. This year that film is obviously Zodiac, which has positioned itself as a potential dark horse for an Adapted Screenplay nomination from the Academy. It's got a tough hurdle to cross though, what with Charlie Wilson's War and particularly The Diving Bell and the Butterfly currently on more people tongues. I wouldn't count it out until we see what the WGA has to say however. Everything else went according to plan. Here are the finalists:

Atonement
Into the Wild
No Country for Old Men
There Will Be Blood
Zodiac
