AFT Awards: Best Original Screenplay

This is the fifth category of the 13th 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.

Honorable mentions (in alphabetical order):
Honey Boy, Marriage Story, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, The Short History of the Long Road

The Farewell
Dolemite Is My Name
Good Boys
Yes, God, Yes

The winner:
Parasite was a superbly poignant and riveting exploration of class and culture, stunningly expressed as much through unspoken sentiments and purposeful dialogue.

Other nominees:
Late Night
Knives Out
The Unorthodox
