AFT Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay

This is the sixth category of the 6th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them and drawn from a pool of approximately 95 films. Click here to see previous years of this category.

Honorable mentions (in alphabetical order):
The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Grassroots

Silver Linings Playbook
The Dark Knight Rises
The Well-Digger's Daughter

The winner:
Headhunters (Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg) was fully captivating, switching from dark comedy to full-on action film without missing a beat and then back again.

Other nominees:
The Sessions (Ben Lewin)
Beasts of the Southern Wild (Lucy Alibar, Benh Zeitlin)
Argo (Chris Terrio)
Anna Karenina (Tom Stoppard)
