It’s that time of year, as awards season heats up the studios start putting out copies of the screenplays they hope will be getting award nomination consideration online. And that means any folks who like to read screenplays get a bonanza of titles to pick from as the season progresses. All the scripts are in .pdf format and will probably only be available through the awards season, so click and save if you’re interested in having a copy to read later on down the road.
