Winner for Best Original Screenplay.
- My pick: Charlie Kaufman for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
- Oscar pick: Charlie Kaufman for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
I’m doing much better in these latter categories. I figured he would get it because it was pretty innovative, if not overly different from Kaufman’s earlier stuff. If his next act is a zombie flick, I will be most appreciative. Poor guy was desperate to leave, and I can kind of understand. Still, I’m glad he got the gold.
