American Fiction And Slow Horses Take 2024 USC Scripter Awards

Mar 10, 2024

As the Oscars draw closer, more and more category winners seem to be locking into place. One of those categories that took another step to being pretty much over is Adapted Screenplay. “American Fiction’s” Cord Jefferson has taken the BAFTA Award, the Independent Spirit Award, and, tonight, won the prestigious USC Scripter Award for Film alongside the original novel’s author, Percival Everett.

Oh, and Jefferson also has a WGA Award nomination but due to the strike last year, those honors won’t be handed out until over a month after the Oscars.
The television winner this year was something of a surprise as Will Smith and “Real Tigers” author Mick Herron won for the Apple TV+ series “Slow Horses.” Smith and Herron overcame strong competition from both “The Last of Us” and “The Crown.” Jefferson and Everett won their category over fellow Oscar nominees for “Oppenheimer” and “Poor Things.”
And in case you haven’t figured it out, the Scripter Awards differentiate themselves by honoring both the screenwriter and the author of the original source material.

Cord Jefferson for American Fiction – ***WINNER***
