Writers of the world, rejoice! This is your moment!!
John Ridley took home his first ever award at the Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay for his phenomenal work on 12 Years a Slave!
He had some stiff competition as he was up against films such as Before Midnight
, The Wolf of Wall Street
, Captain Phillips, and Philomena!
Sure, Robert De Niro might not have the highest opinion of writers, but you just walked away with a golden trophy!
Way to go, John!

We applaud all these writers on their nominations! It's not easy to turn a book into a movie!
They never fit into the DVD case! LOLz!

Usually people get lambasted for trying to rewrite history.
It just won Tony Kushner a Critics' Choice Award!
The Lincoln scribe was given the award for Best Adapted Screenplay!
The movie, based on Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, beat out Argo, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower!
Tony even beat Jennifer Lawrence, and that was tough this year! LOLz!
