12 Years A Slave by Solomon Northup

Congraulation to John Ridley for Best adapted screen play for 12 Years a Slave.

After writing seven novels, three graphic novels and a stage play, he became only the second black person to win an Oscar in the writing category, after Geoffrey Fletcher for “Precious.”JohnRidley JohnRidleyonset john-ridley-86th-oscars-nominees-luncheon-01 became only the second black person to win an Oscar in the writing category, after Geoffrey Fletcher for “Precious.”
