2014 Oscar Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay

Terrence Winter could be a potential consolation prize for "The Wolf of Wall Street"

Terrence Winter could be a potential consolation prize for “The Wolf of Wall Street”

Since the beginning of this Oscar race I found this category to be one of the easiest to predict. However, recently I feel like there could be an upset in the works.

John Ridley for 12 Years a Slave has been so solidly in the lead in this category that I would almost consider him a lock, but that was all until it was clear that 12 Years a Slave would win Best Picture. Now, the winner of one category doesn’t often affect the outcome of another, however I do think that voters know that this may be the only category that they could award Terrence Winter for The Wolf of Wall Street.

Recently, there has also been a surge of support for Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope for Philomena. The duo just recently won the BAFTA award over favorite 12 Years a Slave, so there may be an upset in the works.

The wild card of the category is Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, and Richard Linklater for Before Midnight. I don’t have the guts to predict them, but don’t be surprised if the trio is up on stage.

Check out my predictions below and all my Oscar predictions here!

Will Win: John Ridley for 12 Years a Slave
Could Win: Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, & Richard Linklater for Before Midnight
Should Win: Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke, & Richard Linklater for Before Midnight
Should Have Been Nominated: Nothing really stood out in this category.
