I don't get why anyone was expecting a Les Miz screenplay nom. Other than song orders and the occasional bit of dialogue, and 'opening out' the locations, there wasn't very much obvious adapting.

Very happy that Chbosky and Kushner were nominated.

Les Miz was deemed ineligible by WGA rules, dumbass.

Talking to people who don't follow show business is like talking to the elderly.
