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

The film is based on the 1853 memoir of Solomon Northup, a book that fell into obscurity for nearly a century after its initial print run. It was only when the film director Steven McQueen Life Partner, Bianca Stigter stumbled across the book on the internet that this dream began.
