Logan on the list, also as the only mainstream movie… that's interesting to me. I've never been even roughly into that X men stuff but they almost had me from what I heard about it and so on…

Those seem like a strong field.

Nevertheless, something I thought about in case of the screenwriting award: it somehow irks me a bit since a long time that they publish and judge on the late drafts of the scripts.

It's the kind of point when all departments played into the script and it's all made crystal clear, technical. We hear, We see, editing references, this that, camera angles, capitalizations, partly scene numbers, fancy pages with company logos everywhere and so on... The shooting draft is surely the most important version of the script when it comes to making it real; however, I doubt it is the best, most important and groundbreaking one from the respective writer's perspective, and the perspective on screenwriting in general…

Of course, those versions of scripts are still great, I'm gonna read them, just saying that to a degree the process of Evaluation, to me mirrors the lack of attention toward storytelling as a craft.

Agree - also very difficult to look at these and compare them to standard amateur spec scripts. Many of these are shooting scripts and many were written knowing in advance the film was going to be made - i.e., who gives a crap about the tidiness and details is you know the film is already in the can.

For me, that is the difficulty I have when folks say - hey - look at these pro scripts. They don't do this or that....Well, yeah - cause they were written under an entirely different framework.

I agree with both comments, but only to a degree...

So whilst formatting, camera direction and other bugbears for spec screenwriters litter shooting drafts... it doesn't mean they are not strong in narrative terms, characterisation, pacing etc.

And it's these latter elements I think they have been nominated for, and it's these we can learn from.

IMHO of course

And I hardly disagree.

It's "only" the director who decides where and how to cut considering what the editor did suggest him before.

And so on… Anthony, from start to finish.

It's a late draft/shooting draft contest to a degree that I'm not even convinced the author has written the final terminology and conception on his own… Not sure how often they actually use the screenwriter for that stuff. Sure, there are other interpretations and viewpoints that bring the story massively forward, with other characteristics, like how to shoot to get more emotional impact and so on… not saying at all that those are not creative story elements. It's just no screenwriting.

I say, don't fall for the effects when core is dramaturgy and character, no matter how much later additions push further. The attitude of looking on the pecliar, unrecognized spec screenwriter not using "filming conceptions", is a weak excuse, misleading other screewriters to litter their work with unnecesarry details that are not their decisions, no way. It just absorbs their resources and hinders them from what's truly heavy to lift. But a good excuse it is, to look-like and point on...

Although relatively early drafts are available for quite a few scripts, what would be truly awesome would be a semi-curated pile of spec scripts that can be matched up with actual productions. Clearly not every script even had a spec stage (see Dave's point about stories predestined for production), but I'm curious if the spec script is available for any non-trivial fraction of TV/film productions... I can imagine that a studio might lock up the rights to preserve any trade secrets in their spec-to-shooting sausagemaking, but I hope not.
