I usually make an effort each year to check out most of the scripts for the Awards season contender films. Well, the first two "Oscar Scripts" have been given out by Universal Pictures. Public Enemies and Funny People are in similar situations when it comes to their positions in the Awards race. Both films didn't live up to expectations, but that doesn't necessarily mean they weren't good films. We'll see how it shakes out, but as of right now it seems that Funny People's only likely shot is in the Original Screenplay category, while Public Enemies could score a surprise nomination for Marion Cotillard in the Best Supporting Actress category. 

Even if you haven't seen either of these films, it is never a bad idea to read the script first and see how it all translates to the screen...I have included the links to both scripts below. 

Funny People - Read the Script

Public Enemies - Read the Script

I REALLY like the script for Funny People (not sure whether the academy would nominate though). Public Enemies, not so much.

@ Candice: I agree on both points. Funny People is definitely a long shot for a nomination and the script for Public Enemies was arguably the weakest aspect of the film.
