Oscar Heat Graph: ‘Spotlight’ Shines Above Original Screenplay Entries

Spotlight” has been steadily gaining on all the other possibilities in Oscar original screenplay field, pulling ahead of the pack way back in early October according to Gold Derby’s awards experts. The story of how the Boston Globe exposed a widespread priest molestation scandal was written by Josh Singer along with director Tom McCarthy.

Meanwhile, “Inside Out” has held steady as a possible contender since the beginning of the season, and if it should be included in the Jan. 14 nominee announcement, it would be one of the few animated films to be nominated along with “Ratatouille” and “Wall-E.” It was written by Pete Docter, Ronnie Del Carmen, Meg LeFauve and Josh Cooley.

Coming in just a notch below is “The Hateful Eight,” written by director Quentin Tarantino, while “Joy,” written by Annie Mumolo and director David O. Russell, which started off fairly strong, seems to have fallen off the buzzmeter in recent weeks. Other potential nominees in the Gold Derby survey include “Bridge of Spies,” “Trainwreck,” “Straight Outta Compton,” “Son of Saul,” “Ex Machina” and “Sicario.”
