UPDATED APRIL 2021: If you want to be a screenwriter you need to read a lot of screenplays. And if you are going to read film scripts might as well read some of this year's best. Below is an active running list of 2020-2021 Oscar Contending Screenplays. I'll be adding new screenplays as they become available so check back often.

PLEASE NOTE: These screenplays are FREE and LEGAL to download for educational purposes. The studios will only keep them online throughout the awards season so the clock is ticking. Enjoy.
