Author André Aciman and screenwriter James Ivory for “Call Me by Your Name“
With seven nominees, five of which are nominated for the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay, “Call Me By Your Name” still triumphed. It looks locked and loaded to win the rest of the season, including the WGA tomorrow, the BAFTA and then ultimately the Oscar. Good for James Ivory who is seriously overdue for this level of recognition at this point in his life. Does anyone seriously disagree at this point? Let us know in the comments below.
