Leather Bound, Signed Screenplays from Golden Globes and Awards Season Wash Up on Ebay for Hundreds of Bucks

Share

Awards season is over, and there’s no more swag.

Of course, there’s swag and then there’s swag. As a member of the Broadcast Critics, I receive copies of the screenplays for the year’s films. They’re usually just printed up as a paperback book, with no worth other than having them.

But others really get nice stuff. The Hollywood Foreign Press ASsociation apparently receives autographed screenplays, and mostly leather bound in special embossed covers. How do we know? Well, they’re turned up on e-bay.

Right now screenplays for Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” written by Jay Cocks, Noah Oppenheim’s “Jackie,” and Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight” are all up for auction on the site. Each one specifies that they were created for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
