AFT Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay

This is the sixth category of the 14th 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. I’m drawing only from films that were either released or playing at a film festival in the 2020 calendar year. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them.

One Night in Miami (Kemp Powers) constructed a superbly engaging narrative for its four main characters to come alive and argue about their beliefs.

Ma Rainey's Black Bottom (Ruben Santiago-Hudson)
Charm City Kings (Sherman Payne, Chris Boyd, Kirk Sullivan, and Barry Jenkins)
Downhill (Jesse Armstrong, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash)
