Happy Sunday, everyone.

Between the Sundance Film Festival and our incredible Women Creating Change event with Hollyshorts in Hollywood, it been an exciting, productive and inspiring last week and a half.

I'm rewarding myself with some Death Wish Coffee and some screenplay reading.  Care to join me?

It's my pleasure to present the 10 screenplays nominated for an Oscar this year.  Download em, save em or print em out.  They'll likely only be available for so long.

As you've heard me say a million times, whether you're an actor, director, screenwriter or other film creative, reading great screenplays will enhance your craft.  So crack these suckers open and enjoy the java!



PS - OH!  And don't forget to pay if forward and share this blog!  It'll make you feel amazing!  Also...I welcome your thoughts on any or all this material in the Comments section below!
