Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Adapted Screenplay

The competition: Argo (Chris Terrio), Beasts of the Southern Wild (Lucy Alibar and Benh Zeitlin), Life of Pi (David Magee), Lincoln (Tony Kushner), David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook)

Previous winners: The Descendants, The Social Network, Precious, Slumdog Millionaire, No Country for Old Men, The Departed
My winner: Headhunters
The facts: Tony Kushner and David Magee have both been nominated for a writing Oscar before, in 2005 for “Munich” and in 2004 for “Finding Neverland,” respectively. All the films in this race are nominated for Best Picture.
Who should win: “Beasts of the Southern Wild” or “Argo”
Who will win: There are three possibilities. “Lincoln” or “Silver Linings Playbook” are both strong contenders, but I think Argo will ride the Ben Affleck wave and take home this prize too.
