  1. By Joshua James on

    Playwrights, novelists and screenwriters. The commonality? They’re all writers, most of whom won awards.

    Actually, it looks at though they’ve all won awards, be it an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy or the random Pulitzer.

    Nice you have James Goldman, William Goldman’s older brother, author of the play (and movie) LION IN THE WINTERS.

    And Sterling Siliphant, who won an Oscar in screenwriting (I believe it was IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT, but it could also have been THE POSEIDEN ADVENTURE) and, even cooler for me, trained with Bruce Lee.

    Nice that there are so many playwrights up there, like Shanley, Shaffer and Osborne.

    Ummmm…In addition to being award winners, they all put their pants on one leg at a time?
