The Satellite Nominees

Two questions...where the hell is Benjamin Button, and Elegy is an adapted screenplay, not original. It was adapted from Roth's novel, The Dying Animal by Nicholas Meyer, not Roth himself. They made the same mistake with Button, which is adapted from an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, and is therefore not an original screenplay.

This is joke.
