Quoted from eldave1
The annual blacklist and the blacklist site are two separate beasts run my the same person. There is no relation between the scripts on one and the scripts on the other

Did not know that.

So, how do you qualify to be an annual selectee?
I thought that was the link.

P.S. Good luck with Page, SC!

Thanks, and yes, I’m entering Christmasville. Currently reworking it a little. A coverage service gave it a consider, and the Blacklist evaluation did as well. So I figured I’d polish it a little and enter, see what happens.

The annual Blacklist is based on Franklin Leonard's survey of industry executives. The survey seeks those executives view on which are the  best liked unproduced scripts from the last year.

For 2018, here is a summary of the scripts that made the list by agency.


Nominations by Agency

CAA – 17.5*
Verve – 12
WME – 11
UTA – 10
Paradigm – 4
APA – 3.5*
ICM Partners – 2
Abrams Artists Agency – 1
Gersh – 1

Nominations by Management Company

Bellevue Productions – 7
Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment – 7
Grandview – 6
Madhouse Entertainment – 6
Good Fear Film + Management – 4
Gotham Group – 3
LBI Entertainment -3
Lee Stobby Entertainment – 3
Brillstein Entertainment Partners – 2
Heroes And Villains Entertainment – 2
Hollander Entertainment – 2
Anonymous Content – 1
The Arlook Group – 1
Artists First – 1
Circle of Confusion – 1
Echo Lake – 1
Hopscotch Pictures – 1
Industry Entertainment – 1
LINK Entertainment – 1
Magnolia Entertainment – 1
Management 360 – 1
MGMT Entertainment – 1
The Mission Entertainment – 1
The Radmin Company – 1
Untitled Entertainment – 1
Writ Large – 1

Of all the scripts that made the list - only 2 were from unrepresented writers. What does this tell me?

The list has no direct link to quality. Agencies/Mangers have their client's unproduced scripts in hand. They'd liked to seem them produced. So - they include them on the list when the survey comes out. Probably why you see such a disproportionate number for the large agencies and why when you read some of the scripts you think - WTF - that wasn't that good.

The other Blacklist site is simply a place where writers can upload their scripts and have them evaluated, for a fee. Yes, a small percentage of these scripts have found their way to the annual blacklist - but that is mere coincidence.

I always thought having a site called the Blacklist and an annual list of the top scripts called the Blacklist was really misleading (intentional or not). I too once thought they were one in the same. I would bet that a lot of the site subscribers are under the mistaken belief that somehow high eval scores on the site are the pathway to the list.
