Free Screenplays - 2012

It's that time of the year again. The Melbourne Cup is over, so now we start the long slow climb toward the Academy Awards on February 24. Good luck, Seth McFarlane!

As part of the process, the studios are making copies of screenplays available to members of the Academy ('for your consideration'), except the rest of us get to download them legally as well. The catch is that they can disappear from the studio web pages at any time. If you go back and check the list for last year, you'll see that of the 26 on offer, 9 have disappeared. During the last twelve months, my favorite screenplay site, myPDFscripts, closed down, following repeated legal threats by studios.

The lesson is, Make the hay while the sun, she shines. And while we are in agricultural reference mode, here is the crop of available screenplays for 2012.
