Jason Reitman and Sheldon Turner appear to have cemented a Best Screenplay Oscar for "Up in the Air" after picking up the 2010 Scripter Award in Los Angeles. The Oscar-nominated screenwriters and book author Walter Kirn claimed the the 22nd Annual USC Libraries Scripter Award for the hit film.
The Scripters recognize the author and writers of a produced literary work-to-film adaptation. Reitman and Turner have already won a string of awards and are favorites to land gold at the Oscars in March.
Also honored at the Scripters was Eric Roth, the writer behind adaptations like "Forrest Gump". He was presented with a Scripter Literary Achievement Award.
The honors were handed out at a gala ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday, February 7.
