Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (5589 words)
The Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay is one of the Academy Awards, the most prominent film awards in the United States.
It is awarded each year to the writer of a screenplay adapted from another source (usually a novel, play, or short story).
See also the Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay, a similar award for screenplays that are not adapted from elsewhere.
Academy Award (706 words)
The Awards are granted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a professional honorary organization which as of 2002 had over 6000 members.
Academy Awards are nicknamed "Oscars", which is also the nickname of the statuette (the name is said to have been born when Margaret Herrick[?] saw the statuette on a table and said: "It looks just like my uncle Oscar!").
The awards were first given at a banquet in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on May 16, 1929 but there was little suspense since the winners of the awards had already been announced three months earlier on February 18.
