The Golden Globes dropped their massive nomination list yesterday, and although they are getting all of the press, the list you should be checking is Hollywood’s 2016 Blacklist. It is a big list of the best unproduced screenplays in the business. It is a great list to peruse and see what films we could have gotten out of the Hollywood machine this year. There are quite a few missed opportunities here. Wake up Hollywood!
All hope is not lost though. Most screenplays that make the Blacklist often become films soon. Keep your eyes peeled, because some of your favorites from the list will be coming to a theaters near you in the next few years. Here is the best science fiction movies on the 2016 Blacklist:
