Call him the greatest screenwriter of all time.
Woody Allen has written and directed more than 40 films – some duds, some masterpieces – but each with the same auteur staples, from black-and-white opening credits, to forbidden love swaps eloquently penned in a comedy of manners.
Who but Allen could win Best Original Screenplay in three different decades? In 2011 there was no better screenwriter, just like 1986 and 1977. And among the WGA’ Top 101 Screenplays, Allen has four of them: “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
