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!
