  1. I can't believe how big the Black List gets every year... I think they should divide it into categories (Comedy Drama Adaption Graphic Novel etc etc. So, I have 2 beefs: 1) I don't think writers who adapt a best selling book should be on there unless they actually wrote the book... 2) In one of the categories there should be specs (writers that are new) vs. established writers ... Don't know if that all makes sense

      Ha ha... Yes. I was going to add that's why I loved the Hit List over the Black List ...

      I don't have issue with either of the beefs you mention: if the black list is about essentially most popular writing, why does it matter if it is from source material (which still takes an skill to adapt) or established writers. It isn't a list to promote new writers or to promote unadapted works.

       

      That being said - I'm very glad there is the HIT LIST and it's fun to compare how things shake out between the two.

      True true. And I just watched Franklin Leonard's speech. He does say that his intent was to find new voices and / or new scripts that people love. So, the Black List are the most "loved" scripts in Tinsel Town no matter the genre or subject matter... All I have to say is ... I wish I had time to read them all =)

  4. Just read the first 20 pages of "Somewhere" ... it's not going anywhere... also technically ... tons of white space ... did anybody read this? Does it get better? Or am I insane?

      After reading Somewhere, I've come to the conclusion Sofia Coppola should be a music supervisor -- not a writer.
