More Oscars (screenplay)

OscarGet Out” took home the Oscar for the best original screenplay.  “Social satire and mainstream horror elements merge” in this “strange and smartly written feature” about what happens when black man visits his white girl’s family   Think Stepford Wives meets Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.    “Call Me by Your Name” (shipped), a story of fleeting love between a professor’s son and his father’s summer intern, won the award for best adapated screenplay.   Which is odd, since reviewers hardly mentioned the script, but raved about the film’s visuals and atmosphere.  At least it is pretty to look at.
