One of the few benefits of the frenzied awards race is Hollywood’s outpouring of materials associated with the contenders. Perhaps the biggest perk is the release of full scripts one is able to download legally, directly from the studios.

Featuring The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, Room, Mississippi Grind, Slow West, and While We’re Young, Carol, Steve Jobs, Beasts of No Nation, The Hateful Eight, Bridge of Spies, Spotlight, Brooklyn, and many more, it’s quite a collection.

We’ll be updating this post as these and more arrive over the coming months, so bookmark the page, but one can check out everything thus far below (right click and save to download, or open in your browser by clicking the titles).
