My Two Favorite Scripts of the Year Wins!

Ever since I covered the Oscars in 1983, the two screenplay categories are usually the ones I closely watch simply because it's the one closest to my heart. Writing for the screen takes a different skill since it involves a great ear for dialogue and a lot of great punchlines. So I've decided to place below the best lines from the two movies that won today, first for Birdman, then the other one for The Imitation Game -
Actually, andaming magaling na one liners from Birdman because it's written like a play, and its future Broadway adaptation (I'm sure it will have) should benefit from it -
"Popularity is the slutty little cousin of prestige."
Jake: Oh my gosh! How do you know Mike Shiner?
Lesley: We share a vagina.
Lesley: I wish I had more self-respect.
Laura: You're an actress.
Mike Shiner: Does she speak?
Sam: She does. Yeah, she can sit, stay, and roll over if you have any treats.
Riggan: Why did we break up?
Sylvia: Because you threw a kitchen knife at me. And an hour later you were telling me how much you loved me.
And these are the ones from The Imitation Game, very poignant, very elegant writing.
Joan Clarke: Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
Alan Turing: Do you know why people like violence? It is because it feels good. Humans find violence deeply satisfying. But remove the satisfaction, and the act becomes... hollow.
Alan Turing: When people talk to each other, they never say what they mean.
Alan Turing: They say something else and you're expected to just know what they mean.
Final quotes: His machine was never perfected, though it generated a whole field of research into what became known as "Turing Machines". Today we call them "computers".
Joan Clarke: I know it's not ordinary. But who ever loved ordinary?
