2023 Oscars Predictions: Best Original Screenplay
CATEGORY COMMENTARY: Martin McDonagh is an Oscar-winner for live action short for “Six Shooter” (2004) but has yet to win a screenplay category despite coming close with “In Bruges” (2008) and “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” (2017). Will “The Banshees of Inisherin” bring him his next statuette?
Depends on how well “TÁR” for Todd Field and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert is received by industry voters.
