Oscar Nominees: Best Adapted Screenplay

My predictions: 3/5, picking “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “The Help” over “The Ides of March” and “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy”
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: The Descendants, Hugo, The Ides of March, Moneyball, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Now this category delivered two of the most shocking snubs of the day, though I think the screenplay of “The Help” being left out is the most surprising. I understand the inclusion of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” but did “The Ides of March” really need to be here? “Hugo” is actually the nominations leader, with 11 bids, and “The Descendants” and “Moneyball” each did well, with five and six nominations, respectively.

My current bet to win: “Moneyball”
