....but the late August Wilson is credited for the screenplay so they might want to nominate him.

The USC Scripter nominations have never lined up with the eventual nominees. Well, okay, to be fair in 2012 they nominated six screenplays and the Academy chose five of them. I think Fences is vulnerable because it really seems like they just filmed the play.

There you have your five Oscar nominees. I find it very hard to believe this won't be the list. USC is the single best predictor of Adapted Screenplay out there.
