Since 2016, we awarded 167 winners and selected an additional 563 authors.

Promising Young Woman

A young woman, traumatized by a tragic event in her past, seeks out vengeance against those who crossed her path.


A woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.

The Father

The Father is a 2020 drama film co-written and directed by Florian Zeller, in his directorial debut, based on his 2012 play Le Père. A French-British co-production, the film stars Anthony HopkinsOlivia ColmanMark GatissImogen PootsRufus Sewell, and Olivia Williams, and follows an aging man who must deal with his progressing memory loss.

Little Women

Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women,” which she wrote and directed for Sony Pictures, is one of the great film achievements of the year. To give her film an epic scope — which it has — Gerwig drew from Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel, Alcott’s life and letters, and her own (seamlessly incorporated) original material.

Knives Out

Rian Johnson’s Knives Out is a cinematic tribute to Agatha Christie that deftly updates the classic all-star whodunit.

Marriage Story

Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story is a contemplation of love and an earnest exploration of how to move on when a relationship ends. It’s also one of the best screenplays of the year, if not the decade, with lots of valuable lessons for screenwriters and filmmakers everywhere. 

Find a quiet place, use a humble pen.
