These are mostly, but not exclusively, adapted screenplays. Did you mean to do both? If you only wanted adapted screenplays The Red Balloon, Un homme et une femme and maybe some others won for original, if you wanted both you're missing a bunch.

Is the title of this inspired by Mindy Kaling?

:)

These are mostly, but not exclusively, adapted screenplays. Did you mean to do both? If you only wanted adapted screenplays The Red Balloon, Un homme et une femme and maybe some others won for original, if you wanted both you're missing a bunch.

Both. But only if a) the film received at least one vote in the Top 100; and b) didn't make the final Top 100 list.

Yikes! I was going to rate that one a 9, but I haven't seen it recently enough. It's so sweet! Like Miracle on 34th Street-sweet, but better crafted!

edit: McCrary?! Maybe I should fix that.
