Inside Llewyn Davis - 2014 Best Original Screenplay Oscar Predictions

Unlike adapted screenplay, this category looks to be packed with screenwriting veterans like Woody Allen (15 nominations, 3 wins), David O. Russell (1 nomination for writing, 3 total), and the Coen Brothers (5 nominations, 2 wins). Alexander Payne didn’t write his latest movie, but he is a favorite among the Academy in the screenplay categories. His good name could earn Bob Nelson, writer of Payne’s film Nebraska his first nomination.  — Alex Carlson
