‘Cricket’ clicks for kudos

Screenplay about poor South Boston girl who sings

UCLA grad student Tammy Duffy took first prize at the Samuel Goldwyn Writing Awards for her screenplay “Cricket.”

The 49th annual kudos were announced Monday by Samuel Goldwyn Jr., president of the Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, in a ceremony on the UCLA campus. Previous winners have included Allison Anders, Francis Ford Coppola, Pamela Gray, Colin Higgins, Eric Roth and Jonathan Kellerman.

Duffy’s screenplay is about a poor South Boston girl who gets caught stealing from a chapel by a choirmaster who discovers the girl has the voice of an angel but is forbidden from singing by her father.

Additional Goldwyn winners are Nils Lyew, Cecilia Fannon, Patrick Hunt and Julie Huffman.

Judging this year were producer Brian Grazer, film critic Leonard Maltin and screenwriter and former Goldwyn winner Scott Rosenberg. They judged 120 feature-length screenplays from students at eight U. of California campuses.
