The books Crossfire: the Plot that Killed Kennedy & On the Trail of the Assassins are NOT novels but non-fiction books and should be listed as such. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:02, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
The article doesn't address how this award is supposed to be judged. Is it intended to reward the film that is best-written (from among the nominees)? Or, is it intended to reward the screenwriter who was the most talented at adapting the film? So for example, let's say there's a movie that everyone recognizes as having the most ingenious plotting and dialogue of any movie ever made, but the movie was adapted from a play without changing very much, the play was already so good that the screenwriter hardly did any work, but then there's another nominee in the category where the movie is based on a great novel that everybody always believed to be unfilmable but then the screenwriter found a way to adapt it into a great movie such that the process of adaptation was clearly ingenious although the final script judged by itself as a script was merely great, not excellent.
