Bravo! There's a simple set of (implied) "rules" that even Craig Mazin would embrace, I think. If we can master those common characteristics of the 10 excellent scripts, and avoid the pitfall of the also-ran's, we will have great scripts that have a real chance in the market. Period. How we got there -- whether from guru books or film school courses or reading many fantastic scripts -- doesn't matter. And nothing works for everybody. All that matters is the result.
Thanks for posting this.

Amazing eye-opener.

To think that for all those years I tried to write non-compelling stories with bland characters.

Figured since we all have Nicholl on the brain these days some insight into the judging process might help pass the time till the QFs are announced.

I'm eating a bowl of Cheerios for breakfast right now and just spit milk out my nose. Crap that's funny.

Yes, amazing eye-opener indeed.
