"Slumdog Millionaire" Wins the Scripter
The USC Scripter award, which honors both the screenwriter and the author of the source material has gone to Simon Beaufoy, who based his Slumdog Millionaire screenplay on the book Q&A by Vikas Swarup. This is all well and good (and totally expected), but I maintain that this is just not a very good script. I'm sorry, but Slumdog suceeds - and barely suceeds at that - by sheer force of Danny Boyle's stylish direction. Bring on the DGA tomorrow night.
