Hollywood continues to take stock of the outgoing year. Recently, the names of the winners of the Critics' Choice Awards and the nominees for the Golden Globe award were announced, and today the world was presented with the annual Blacklist of the best unrealized scenarios.|
In just 11 years the Blacklist managed to become perhaps the most famous talent fair in the world of big cinema. The idea to create a rating of the most interesting scenarios of the year came to an employee of the company Appian Way Productions Franklin Leonard. In 2005, for the first time, he decided to send letters to familiar Hollywood producers asking them to name the top ten scenarios of the year that had not yet been implemented by film companies.
Over the years, the list has included scripts for Slumdog Millionaire, American Scam, Juno, Operation Argo, Survivor, and many other famous films. In total, films from the Black List have earned over two hundred Oscar nominations. This year it included scripts for 73 films, many of which have already been covered by the bosses of the world's leading film studios.
