Re-ranking the contenders in Best Adapted Screenplay

Ahoy there folks. Today I’m continuing on down the line of the big eight categories and re-ranking them all. The latest one to get this treatment, you ask? Why, it’s Best Adapted Screenplay, which will be one of the final few ones that I’m doing in this series (I’ll conclude[...]
