Each Wednesday in 2010, TSD challenges you to a mini-survey that is in some way related to screenwriting or filmmaking. To suggest a topic, send Solmaaz Yazdiha a note and include the word “poll” in the subject field. The archive is here
Karel Segers wrote his first produced screenplay at age 17. Today he is a story analyst with experience in acquisition, development and production. He has trained students worldwide, and worked with half a dozen Academy Award nominees. Karel speaks more European languages than you have fingers on your left hand, which he is still trying to find a use for in his hometown of Sydney, Australia. The languages, not the fingers.

1 thought on “Which screenplay deserves it most?”
Although it is not on this list (it’s on the other one) because technically it’s adapted from another piece of work.
In this case the short film, which was more than likely always intended to be a feature.
I’d have to say District 9 should get the statue for Original Screen play (or atleast the statue for the category it is in)
