2017 Beboti Awards: Best Screenplay

This might be the most competitive of all the awards, as there was a huge stack of great screenplays this year. There is an argument to be made for all of these nominees, so the separation between them is not that much. Plus, this list is just a small sample of terrific work in 2016.

Nominees


Damien Chazelle, La La Land
Eric Heisserer, Arrival
Taylor Sheridan, Hell or High Water
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Tom Ford, Nocturnal Animals
Shane Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, The Nice Guys


Winner






Eric Heisserer, Arrival

I am a sucker for good sci-fi, especially ones that don't treat their viewers like idiots. That is definitely true of Arrival which took the simple idea of communication and the connection between us all, and wove a terrific story about aliens descending on Earth to teach us something. Beautifully done.
