Do you have an opinion on what scripts should take home the awards for Best Original and Best Adapted Screenplays at the 2010 Oscars? Well, if not you may want to begin by reading a few yourself as I have once again updated the online script database for this year’s contenders as more and more For Your Consideration sites open up their doors.

Today I have added nine new scripts as Focus, Lionsgate, Warner Bros. and Overture have brought their award sites online.

If you are interested, the Focus Features site is incredibly involved and quite fancy. It features not only the scripts for A Serious Man, 9, Coraline and Sin Nombre but also the complete scores/soundtracks in 192kbps .MP3 quality. Carter Burwell’s score for A Serious Man is worth the visit alone. Warner Bros. also features the scores for The Informant, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Where the Wild Things Are while Wild Things is currently the only script not yet available.

Below you will get links to the award sites as well as links to each screenplay, with the newest scripts marked as such. Remember to bookmark our The Contenders section and/or subscribe to the Contenders RSS Feed for continuous awards updates.
