Oscar Heat Meter: ‘The Big Short’ Sees Late Surge in Adapted Screenplay Race

The Big Short” has seen a last-minute surge of optimism from awards season experts on the Gold Derby site. Going into nominations Thursday, the Adam McKay and Charles Randolph script about the housing crisis is seeing about the same standing as “Steve Jobs.”

But Aaron Sorkin’s screenplay for the Apple co-founder biopic started out on top of the adapted screenplay pile, where it stayed for months before dipping recently as buzz cooled down. However, “Room” could be the little engine that could, staying on an even keel throughout awards season to end up on about the same level as the aforementioned titles. Trailing behind in the prognostication game are “Carol,” “Brooklyn” and “The Martian,” while “The Revenant,” “Trumbo,” “The Danish Girl” and “Anomalisa” are barely registering.
