Good sites for finding scripts of the hit movies of the last couple of years.

I was wondering if anyone knew of any good sites for reading the scripts of hit movies or Oscar nominated movies from the last couple of years?


I'm coming off of two or three years of reading scripts by peers who are trying to make it off of spec scripts.  And I'm kind of curious to read an analyze some scripts that have really made it, and done well, either commercially or critically.

Thank you, for this!  I've found a variety of scripts to read.  Some where I've already seen the movie, and some where I haven't.  And I think both experiences can be good: reading the script when you know the movie, and then seeing the movie after first knowing the script.  Thanks again!

Have you tried SimplyScripts' site.   It has movie scripts, television scripts, radio scripts, unproduced scripts and those that have won Oscars, among others.

Thank you, Billie!  Simply Scripts looks like it has some of the scripts that I'm looking for too.  I'm wanting to read maybe five or ten professional scripts, and analyze them, like I critiquing them for a member here, just to see how they conform or don't conform to what we are taught about how scripts should be.

The posting makes it seem like the comments posted were from other readers. They were my own comments. They were not the comments of other readers.

I beg to differ with you, Howie Austin.  This is NOT my site.  Although I am a citizen and pay to be on here, this site does, in fact, belong to Ben and he's made it the success it is. Perhaps I've overlooked the vast contributions you've made since you  joined us - TODAY - as a tourist.  It would help if you would enlighten me by pointing them out. 


As far as Jason Dennis, what you've done is a terrible disservice to him and if anyone should apologize, I believe it should be you. 


Jason, if you need anyone to speak up in your behalf to Austin, I'll be happy to.  I know you have recused yourself from reading screenplays any of us on Talentville have submitted and I certainly don't recall reading anything I believe would justify the action taken.

If you subscribe to BlueCat, they include links to several top scripts in every newsletter. Over time, you'll read a bunch of high-quality, award-winning scripts. I highly recommend it.
