"Oscar Winners - Best Adapted Screenplay" Collection

Awarded to the best work based on pre-existing material – which can mean something obvious like a book or play but also includes an adaptation from a previous film or even something like a short article. Interestingly, this means that all sequels scripts automatically fall into this category. Double award winners include Francis Ford Coppila, Mario Puzo and Alexander Payne, with Geoffrey S. Fletcher becoming the first African American to win any writing prize when he picked up the award for Precious in 2010.
