USC Scripter Award to ‘Leave No Trace’ Breaks Oscar Predicting Streak

The 31st-annual USC Libraries Scripter Award honored the year’s best film and television adaptations, as well as the works on which they are based, at a black-tie ceremony on Saturday in the Edward L. Doheny Jr. Memorial Library at the University of Southern California. This group of academics, industry professionals, and critics (for which I vote) is often predictive of the Adapted Screenplay Oscar race.

Last year’s Scripter winners were “Call Me by Your Name” screenwriter James Ivory (who won the Oscar), and author André Aciman; past winners include “Moonlight,” “The Big Short,” and “The Imitation Game,” which all won Oscars. In fact, the past eight Scripter Award winners have gone on to win Oscars.

Not this year. Amazon Studios’ limited series “A Very English Scandal,” adapted by Russell T Davies from the book by John Preston, took home the USC Libraries Scripter Award for television, which will compete in the 2019 Emmy race.

Another remake has been announced, and this time there might not be a lot of complaints.

Home Entertainment: The Girl On The Train DVD review

The Girl On The Train is an ambitious, supremely dark intensely female-driven thriller adapted from the popular 2012 novel by British author Paula Hawkins. The film version sees its action relocated from Hertfordshire to New York state and focuses largely upon Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) a 32-year-old alcoholic who is also recovering from the severe break-down of her marriage to Tom (Justin Theroux). She commutes into New York City every day, sitting in the same seat, sipping from the same drink, staring at the rows of suburban houses at the side of the rail track. She fantasies about some of the inhabitants of said houses, including amorous couple Scott and Megan Hipwell (Luke Evans and Haley Bennett), who have tendencies to caress on their balcony, cavort in their garden and snuggle under a blanket around an open fire. Things take a change for the worse one day when Rachel suddenly witnesses
