    Hmm, that article has spiked my hopes for ‘Amelia’ juuuussstt a little bit.

    I do love me a big, old-fashioned, sweeping, period-piece, historical melodrama. We’ll see.

    Score by Yared helps, as well.

    Kris, this is kind of off topic but I noticed you’ve added District 9 to the Original Screenplay list. Any particular reason why? I loved the film but it was a little surprising to see it considered as a possible writing contender (not that I don’t think it’s written well but it doesn’t seem like something they would ultimately go for).

    Just spit-balling. It’s an extremely weak category (AMPAS-wise).
