"Rosewater" - Jon Stewart (Adapted Screenplay)
Pros: On the Television side, Stewart has won 20 Emmy Awards, two Peabody awards and numerous WGA awards for "The Daily Show." He also hosted the Academy Awards twice. His "Rosewater" screenplay earned some kudos for accurately integrating some humor into a very dark subject matter (an element discussed in Maziar Bahari's original memoir).
Cons: Reviews for "Rosewater" have been mixed to positive. It's unclear whether it's an awards player of any kind at the moment.
