THE SAVAGES, Written by Tamara Jenkins, Fox Searchlight
KNOCKED UP, Written by Judd Apatow, Universal Pictures
LARS AND THE REAL GIRL, Written by Nancy Oliver, MGM

My thoughts:

1. Goodbye, Atonement.
2. Great news for The Savages and Lars...can Knocked Up make it at the Oscars, too?
3. Bad news for Ratatouillle (but I thought that they had a separate category for animated screenplays?)
4. Zodiac is looking in the race.
