RANDOM FACTS ABOUT THIS YEAR’S LIST:

  • The Top Voted script received 113 mentions (almost 1/2 of all voters chose it).
  • There were over 50 scripts with just 1 vote (variety is the spice of life).
  • The Cover of this year’s list is made up of our ten favorite lines of dialogue
    from the top 10 scripts (can you tell which is which?).
  • Three of the top 10 voted scripts are still available (But for how long?).
  • The highest voted script chosen entirely by write ins, managed 14 votes. (almost triple the next highest write in, at 5).
  • This year’s list is available in both PDF, and PDF Interactive (which works amazingly on your Ipad).

(While the PDF interactive is available to download for everyone, the features are only available to members).

  1. The problem I have with the Black List is that almost all of the scripts are in the works – they have been bought or are in preprod or have producers attached and are moving into production. They don’t need any boost.

    The good thing about this list is that many are unsold and have no producers attached – they need a list to help them…

    But many on the list have been sold or have producers attached and are moving along. Wish someone would do a list of *only* unsold screenplays, and even reserve 10 slots for unrepped scripts. Really help those scripts that were great but were passed over for some reason. Those scripts need a boost. A script that sold to Warner Bros… sold to Warner Bros!

    • While I agree — is that a chicken or the egg thing?

      All the reasons the Black List was created is exactly why this one was created. Almost word for word. Spec scripts that fall through the cracks.

      I do see a niche for the Hit List. Not bagging on it, at all.

      Just pointing out, the better the list is at identifying which are the “good” scripts of the year, the more likely it becomes that the scripts listed on those lists are constantly “in production.”

      • Last year, most of the scripts of the Black List had *already* been bought, and some were assignments. My point is that any script that is an assignment, or has sold, or has a producer attached doesn’t need the boost from a list. But a screenplay that might have gone out and no one wanted it – but it’s a great script – needs a push.

        When Movieline did their best unproduced script list, part of the deal was that any sold scripts were dead with no chance of ever being made. If it still had a heartbeat, it was excluded from the list.

        I think that any list that helps good scripts get through all of the crap is a great thing.
