Thursday Movie Picks: Oscar Edition - Screenplay
It's the first TMP of the month, so that means its another Oscar edition over at Wandering Through The Shelves. This week we're talking about screenplays, and since it's pride month I decided to pick my favorite screenplay winners for LGBTQ+ films. Hopefully we have many more of these winners to come.
1) Brokeback Mountain - The more I think about this film, the more I think it's actually perfect. It absolutely deserved its Adapted Screenplay win. I read the short story in college and Ang Lee beautifully expanded on it.
2) Milk - I believe when Dustin Lance Black won his Best Original Screenplay Oscar he was the first openly gay man to do so. His speech was beautiful, and this was such a good movie.
3) Moonlight - When this film ended, I wasn't ready to leave Chiron. I wanted to stay with him and make sure he was going to be okay. Normally I would hate that in a screenplay, but I get it. This is one of my all time favorite Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay winners. It's such a beautiful film.
