Acad unveils Nicholl list

10 scribes picked from 6,044

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has tapped 10 scribes, from an original pool of 6,044 submissions, as contenders for the 2002 Don & Gee Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting.

This year’s finalists are Larry Brooks, John Carlo, David Cowper, Jeffrey Robert Davis, Matt Harris, Pamela Kay, Kurt Kuenne, Barbara Mitchell, Annie Reid and Creighton Rothenberger. Five of the 10 will receive Nicholl nods, in the form of $30,000 fellowships, at a gala dinner Nov. 14.

Since its inception in 1985, several fellows have parlayed their Nicholls into successful careers. Most recently, 1998 fellow Mike Rich penned “The Rookie,” released by Disney earlier this year, while 1996 fellow Ehren Kruger’s “The Ring” bows next weekend.
