    For a screenwriter I don’t think is that great Eric Roth certainly stacks up the nominations

    I've read a few of these texts already.

    Do not underestimate The Wonder. The story is good and Leilo and his co-writer are very talented.

    But especially do not underestimate The Pale Blue Eye. While the book itself suffers from an overload of purple prose, the story and characters are positively brilliant. The final act, in particular, is ballsy, surprising and impactful. Mystery crowd's gonna adore this provided Cooper doesn't fuck it up. Author Bayard handed him a potential genre classic on a silver platter.

    Poor Things has all the makings of a winner, the book has a pretty unique structure, its dialogue heavy and leans comedic which they seem to love in screenplay.

    White Noise was totally not my cup of tea as a book but I could see it working better as an adaptation. Looooots of dialogue (way too much in the book imo) about philosophical stuff.

    The Wonder is a straightforward novel.. not sure I see that getting in unless the movie is a massive player.

    Still have to read Women Talking.
