This category is just so interesting this year. I’m still completely on the fence over who’s going to take it this year.

  • Frozen River
  • Happy-Go-Lucky
  • In Bruges
  • Milk
  • WALL·E

Happy-Go-Lucky. It’s a bold prediction, but it’s gotten so much critical praise and Sally Hawkins really lost out on a nomination. They may want to honor it here.

What Should Win:
WALL·E. I think it’s got the most original story here, even though it has such little dialogue. I’d love to say Milk here, but I’m so weary about it being an original screenplay. It’s based on the life of a real person and there is already has a book and a documentary on the subject, so the fact that it’s an original script loses credibility in my mind.
