Download pdf: screenplays of Golden Globes & Oscar 2016 movies

The 73rd Golden Globe Awards is just over. The big party in the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Los Angeles, today is ended. Everybody smiled, whether his or her film won the prize or not. However, in Hollywood’s point of view, those are the movies of the year. If you are a writer like me, you might be interested to study the screenplays of those films.

Well, you are lucky to have a bunch of links to download those fine screenplays here.

Don’t be awkward, it’s legal. The studios themselves released the screenplay pdf publicly, for marketing’s sake and to open a better path to upcoming Academy Awards. As we know, The Golden Globes foreshadows The Academy Awards or Oscar. For such consideration, some studios then posted .pdf files of their movie’s screenplay.

Not all the Golden Globes 2016 movies is in the list below. But I think it’s still a treasure. Furthermore, there are also scripts of other good movies, which are not the nominees in the awards. Just click each title to download the screenplay pdf. Unfortunately, they are of course totally spoilers….
