The authors and screenwriters of “127 Hours,” “The Ghost Writer,” “The Social Network,” “True Grit” and “Winter’s Bone” are finalists for the USC Libraries Scripter Award. The winners will be announced on Feb. 4.

Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy adapted “127 Hours” from Aron Ralston’s autobio “Between a Rock and a Hard Place.” “Ghost Writer” was adapted by helmer Roman Polanski from Robert Harris’ novel “The Ghost.” Ben Mezrich’s “The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal” became “The Social Network” by screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Joel and Ethan Coen wrote the script for “True Grit,” based on the novel by Charles Portis. Author Daniel Woodrell’s “Winter’s Bone” was written for the screen by Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini.

The Scripter Award honors the scribes of film adaptations as well as the author of the original work.

The awards banquet will be held at the Edward L. Doheny Jr. Memorial Library on the USC campus.
