'Quartet' - Ronald Harwood - Adapted Screenplay
Pro: Ronald Harwood, who adapted his own play, is an Oscar winner in this same category for "The Pianist" and was previously nominated for "The Dresser" (also based on his play) and for 2008's "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly." To say he's respected among his peers is something of an understatement.
Con: While "Quartet" is entertaining it's relatively minor fare compared to Harwood's previous work. The film's best Oscar chances are really in the acting categories.
