BAFTA Screenplay Nominations: More of the Same

By Cameron Cubbison · January 10, 2015

Per every awards cycle we tend to get a lot of the same nominations across the board. There is one title that we are excited to see make the BAFTA cut: Nightcrawler

Penned by veteran screenwriter (while also making his directorial debut) Dan Gilroy, Nightcrawler blends a chaotic nature of crime journalism with a bent sense of humor that even the darkest of comedians would find troubling. 

 

The below nominations will all show up again in some manner so expect for one of them (our money is on The Grand Budapest Hotel) to take the big gold statue.
